CI.EAN-tP IN PITTSBURGH 

The present administration la Pittsburgh, Pa., 
has been buey censorlug moving picture shows, ami 
bus not given much attention to theatres, tlira 
ciilng some show managers Ihe Impression Uiey 
coold "pot over" anything In the way of vnl- 
rarity regardlers of the character of the audi- 
ences. It la a pleasing feature to note that Pltts- 
Liirgh managers are considerably higher minded 
than those with a ntnnber of traveling orgatilxa- 
lions which hove visited that city In the past 
three' months, and therefore Ihe unnecessary In- 
decency vraa ellmJjin*ed tfter the ttrrt perfor- 
mance, with the- understanding that If repeated, 
cancellation would take Place Immediately. 

Daring Ihe past two weeks, however, the. oily 
cenwrs nave been busy, and Issued a nnrjliet of 
complaints demanding modltlctitlon In several in- 
stances, of performances whlcii were Justly a dis- 
grace to the • theatrical profcnfon, and It Is said 
at thia time that an ordinance will soon be pre- 
sented to council against performances of »n oh- 
noilous nature, and which may lead lo tbo local 
police baring the pleasure of tutcrtalnlng a num- 
ber of "near performers," for no real performer 
flnds It necessary to overstep the bounds of pro- 
priety, to get applause.

UPHOLD NEGROES. 

According to a declalon of the Court of Appeals 
In Albany. N. Y., April 21. a theatre cannot dis- 
criminate agaluat negroes In the sale of seats to 
any part of its house. . 

The case In question was an action brought 
hy Suaan M. Joyner against the Moore-Wlgglne 
Company, proprietors of the Temple Theatre. 
Rochester, N. Y., to recover damages alleged to 
have been Buffered by the plaintiff by reason of 
the fact that the theatre proprktors, through their 
tervaabJ .and agents, and In violation of the civil 
rlghta law, refused the plaintiff a sea* in the 
Temple Theatre there. ^ 

Miss Joyner obtained a Judgment for »312 by 
a verdict of the Appellate Division, nnd the Court 
of Anpeala affirmed the Judgment with costs.

"AMBITION" FOB PBINCESS. 

The not result of the persistent efforts of F. 
Ray Oomstock to obtain an attraction for the 
lTlnceas Theatre seems to be a probability mat 
•'Ambition" will get the booking. 

"Ambition," by Ashley Miller, did service brief- 
ly for George W. Lederer under the title of rue 
Seventh Chord," a year ago. - 

The economy of the enterprise, and the merits 
of the piece, attracted Edward F. Kush, and he 
recently sent the piece on tour. 

In the present production Helen Itovton acts 
the role of a show girl. Marguerite St. John is 
a boarding house keeper, Ethel Browning plays a 
maid, and Charles Maude portrays a composer. 
The music Is by Alfred Sohman.

SUIT TO FOLLOW LEASE OF 
THEATRE. 

Salt for damages la threatened against J. W. 
Blodgett for alleged' violation of hit contract with 
the late Thomas J. Noooan la connection with 
tlie Broadway Theatre, Portland, Ore. Mr. Noooan 
had a contract for the theatre, which be trans- 
ferred to his brother. Robert V. Noonan. before 
he died. On April 16 Blodgett closed a deal, hy 
which be leased the Broadway to Sullivan ft Con- 
Bldlne to be nsed for Orpbeum vaudeville after 
Sept. 1. This Ieaae, say Fallon & Bowerman. 
attorneys for Noonan, Is In direct violation of 
the original contract with T. J. Noonan. 

The agreement between T. J. Noonan and Mr. 
Blodgett, It Is asserted. Includes "the heirs and 
assignees" of both parties to the contract. With 
the death of T. J. Noonan the agreement went 
to his brother, of Condon ft Noonan. and the sur- 
viving brother. It la said, was carrying oat the 
agreement, making suggestions, which were agree- 
able to Blodgett, and otherwise, apparently the 
original agreement wns being carried out. 

Negotiations which have been In progress for 
the last two months terminated above date. When 
Mr. Blodgett leased the Broadway to Sullivan ft 
Consldlne without consulting; Mr. Noooan. The 
Inception of the general change among Portland 
theatres, which Is being brought about as a result 
of the Broadway lease, was eight to ten weeks 
ago. when Calvin Helllg hod a conference wltb 
J. J. Harrison, partner and real estate man for 
Sullivan & Consldlne, at which time they tried 
to arrange to have Sullivan ft Consldlne take the 
Broadway for Orpheum attractions, and aurrender 
the Orpbeum to Helllg. At that time Trta 
Ot.tTTsn'8 correspondent was Informed by Mr. 
nellig that there was no such negotiations. 

Under the new transaction. Calvin Helllg w!'l 
once more seenre the theatre which was orig- 
inally the Helllg, bat which has been use! hy 
the Orpheum since the first of the year. Sulli- 
van ft Consldlne will shift the Orpheum to the 
Broadway. This leaves the present Helllg. on 
Eleventh Street, to he taken care of. Posslhlv 
Manager CJeorgo L. Baker will move hlr stock 
company to the present Helllg; (originally the 
Raker), nnd the present Baker i formerly the 
Orplieuro) may he used for motion pictures. The 
future of the Baker stock company has not been 
determined. It will either move to the present 
Helllg, or will remain where It Is. Manager 
Paker Is not prepared to say, although Manager 
Ileillg has long desired to boo the present Bakes 
used for movies. 

Sullivan ft Consldlne, when they vacated the 
old Orphenm, Marquam (now the Raker), leased 
the Helllg (now Orpheum) lor a period of ten 
years, paying $3,500 a month. This rental had 
been a bard drain, and In surrendering the lease 
to Manager Helllg, the vaudeville fin la aald to 
pay $115,000. There has been complaint asalnst 
high grade shows appearing at the pnsent Helllg. 
and Manager Helllg looked with longing eye* at 
the present Onbenm and has tried to And sites 
and finances Inr a new theatre, and ha, as well 
as Sullivan ft Consldlne, has dickered for the 
Broadway. 

Manager Helllg's attractions will play the Or- 
pheum (formerly Helllg), starting In July, and 
the Orpheum ahowa, which will be abandoned 
during July and August, will start at the Broad- 
way, which la to be called the New Orpheum, If 
the house Is completed by Sept. 6. Sullivan A 
Consldlne have all of the Broadway Theatre Build- 
ing, (tores, offices and playshop. . 

The suit against Mr. Blodgett wilt be Sled as 
soon as Fulton k Bowerman find time, they say. 
as the draft of the complaint la already drawn.

MABTIN MANN A GENUINE HIT IN 
«TOO MANY COOKS," 

Good dialect character work Is always highly 
enjoyable, and there arc several nationally famed 
artthta who bave made their histrionic reputa-

and more apparent mannerisms of Hie Irish, Ger- 
man nnd Hebrew races. 

The Irish character, one of the easiest to por- 
tray , and the one mora often ridiculously and 
liiurllatlcnlly overdone, has had many clever ex- 
ponents, but It Is doubtful It there has ever been 
n is'tter atage "tad" than the type so realistically

"Pygmalion has already been performed 
we bad not received good reports, public In- 
terest In the production of the play at Bis 
Majesty's Theatre on Saturday night was 
very great. Crowds beselged the doors long 
before tho opening time, including a number 
of typical London flower "girls," who avowed 
their Intention of submitting Mrs. Patrick 
Campbell's performance to a careful crttl- 
idsm. but who, I suspect, had been secured 
for reclame. Shaw issued his now habitual 
nppeal to the public not to interrupt the pro- 
gress of bis masterpiece by laughter or ap- 
plause. We are quite tired of this. But 
Tree seriously Issued a counterblast, and 
begged the audience to laugh and applaud If 
thev saw their way to do so. sirs. Camp-

has been assiduous in his attendance at re- 
hearsal since his position became official. 
The general opinion is that, though Mrs. 
Campbell exercised ber usual charm and fas- 
cination, ber performance never really sug- 
gested a flower glrl.i It was a triumph of 
personality. When, at the end of the third 
act, she Blurted out ber special line, "Not 
bloody likely," the audience was possessed 
for several minutes, and the play was Inter- 
rupted till the laughter subsided. It was an 
edifying spectacle. Sir Herbert Tree is ill 
suited with the pant of the professor. The 
general impression seems to be that tbe pub- 
lic would not tolerate the play, were it not 
Shaw's, and, indeed, would not have recog- 
nized bis genius therein had it been produced 
as the work of an anonymous writer. 

"Potash and Perlmubter" was produced at 
the Queen's Theatre on Tuesday and bad 
quite a good reception. This wisdom of en- 
trusting the play, almost without an ex- 
ception, to American performers, was at once 
apparent. The Important parts would cer- 
tainly have been ruined by English actors 
and actresses. They are disposed as follows : 
Perlmutter, Robert Leonard; Potash, Abe 
Yorke : Pasinsky, Charles Dickson ; Feld- 
man, Edgar Ellwanger ; Andnteff, Ernest Mil- 
ton : Ruth Goldman, Madeline Seymour ; Mrs. 
Potash, Matilda Cotrelly. All of them are 
fine. Now we have got to see how London 
takes to the Jewish humor. The progress 
of tbe Jew on the stage here has been very 
Interesting. We began. I suppose, with tbe 
passionate protest of "Leah the Forsaken." 
Then, in Charles Readers play, "It's Never 
Too Late to Mend," there was a romantic 
type of Jew. But mostly our stage Jew 
was the nefarious usurer of Drury Lane 
drama. Only a few years ago Cecil Raleigh 
gave Ms money lender a kind heart, In the 
"way of a caricature of Sam Lewis, the mil- 
lionaire money-lender. The odd thing is that 
while the Jewish people resented this money- 
lender type, most of the managers responsl- 
bje for him were Hebrews, and the most fa- 
mous representatives of the unamlable Jew 
were Hebrews — Harry Jackson for a notable 
Instance. Sydney Grundy's attempt to give 
a Jew charm and benevolence — John Hare, 
In "An Old Jew," ways not a success. In 
the way of humor we first tried Curtis, In 
"S&m'l of Posen," hut I believe it was only 
ployed once. On tbe music ball stage Frank 
Bush was here a while before he made good, 
though be has done bo now; while half a 
dozen Jewish teams are popular enough In 
cross-table acts. I doubt If the success of 
"The Melting Pot" has been very substan- 
tial. Now Ft Is up to "Potash and Perl- 
mutter." 

Elsie Janls has the next American open 
allotted to her. in the Palace revue, "Tbe 
Passing Show," on Monday next. Says Al- 
fred Butt, of the artist: "I know that a 
prophet is all too frequently without honor 
In his own country, but I am bold enough to 
express my firm conviction that Miss Janls 
wilt make a most unusual and signal hit in 
our new production." There will be no rag- 
time in "The Passing Show." Gus Sohlke Is

Tyrone Power has also secured a llcerao for Will-

Charles Frohmaa reached London on Monday. 
He says "the psst season in America has demon- 
strated that American audiences demand strong.

"Much balderdssh." «sys Arthur Bourchler. 

has been written about the lowering of tbe 



actor's calling by Its association with tbe variety

ety theatre Is tbe severest test for actor and play- 
wright, who have to hold tbe audience every 
second or fall dismally. . . What a drama 
In brief Shakespeare could have written, what a

tbe description of "The Honeymoon Express," pro-

Deaths. 

Arthur MoKee nankin, 

Arthur McKee Rankin, tbe actor, died In San 
Francisco, Cal., April 17. after being confined to 
bis room In tbe Hotel Continental for several 
weeks. He waa seventy-three years old, and had 
been on the stage for nearly sixty years. 

Mr. Rankin first appeared on the stage under

I1V VAUDEVIIylVE. 




Aroble Hoyd. 

Archie Boyd, for forty years a creator of 
pastoral stage characters, died In his home In St. 
Louis, .Mo.. April Hi, as the result of a nervous 
collapse suffered several months ago. Mr. Boyd 
was sixty-tour years old snd continued his work 
on the stage until a year ago. He was born In 
St. Louis, and began his stage career In that city. 

In an Interview with Boyd in June, 1808, he 
said: "Although I am a Westerner, I've man- 
aged to fool the public Into the belief that I'm a 
New Esglander. For ten successive seasons I've 
been plsylng Yankee farmers. I haven't bad to 
use a net, sod I've been tolerated In ths parts 
originated by Mr. Heme snd Denmsn Thompson. 
My prescribed dtet Is pumpkin pie, Boston bsked 
beans and brown bread; so, after a few mora 
seasons ot Uncle Josh and Uncle Nat Berry, 1 
shall begin to believe that I am the real thing. 
At present I feel llko an Impostor 

"In the old stock days, 1 ' he continued, "I 

IirMcd myself on my Irish and Dutch dialects. 
was also considered ss something of a cracker- 
Jack at yodel and Tyrolean songs. It's fourteen 
years now since I sang ou tbe stage, but In the 
old days If I didn't sing in one of the pieces 
every night I felt that I hadn't earned my salary. 
But, nowadays, because I'm limited to one line 
of business, people Imagine that 1 can't do any- 
thing else. Even In portraying those old farmers, 
tome versatility was essential. No two of them 
are alike. Joshua Whltcomb has nothing In com- 
mon with Otis Tucker; Uncle Nat Berry and 
Ainasa Bnrtlett are two distinct mortals. Now, 
without throwing bouquets to myself, I think 1 
may take a little credit for filling myself to those 
different personalities. The parts were all writ- 
ten especially to fit certain actors who achieved 
great success In their representation. I took these 
parts second hand, so to speak, and shaped my 
personality to fit them. You can see, therefore, 
that my old stock training never did me any hurt, 
aisl you can understand whit I mean when 1 
laugh at the Ida of being tied down to one line 
of business. 

'•Where did I start In tho profession 1 In S». 
Louis, Mo., with Ben De Bar. That was In lhTO. 
My line then was character comedy. I spoke ill 
dialects, sung uud danced, and made myself gen- 
erally useful. From 8t. Louis I went to tho St. 
entries slock In New Orleans, then to the The- 
atre Royal, Montreal, and then to Tom Davey'u 
in Detroit. Mrs. George Farrcit, R. Horsey Og- 
deit. Monte Ransom Mrs. Peuunjer, II. It. Nor- 
man, ami W. J. Gilbert worn sonio of the |>eop!e 
1 recall In Tom Davcy'o Stock. We alternated be- 
tween Memphis nnd Detroit. 

"When tho Klralfys first put on 'Around the 
World In Eighty Days' I wits engaged for Fix, the 
detective, 'litis was In 18711, down In New Or- 
leans. In the fourth net Charlie Hawkins, as 
I'assuparlout, recovers ihe money which Fix has 
stolen from hint earlier In tho piece. Mr. Haw- 
kins' pistol exploded full In my fsce, and tor three 
months afterward the doctors told me that my 
sight wss gone forever. I lost an entire season's 
work. Returning Norih I mailo New York my 
headquarters, and when I had recovered my 
health went out with a company managed by 
Robert K. Stevens. Then I Joined Gus Williams 
for his first starring tour under John Itlckaby's 
management. I next went with 'Tbe Pavements 
of Paris,' replacing Harold Forsborg. The sea- 
son following I was with McKee Rankin, originat- 
ing the old negro hi ' '40.' I also plsyed the 
Judge In 'The Danltes,' and for four weeks 
played McKee Rankin's part In ono night stands 
In Michigan, without anybody detecting tbe sub. 
stltutlou. When we reached Chicago Rankin 
wanted me to continue In the part but tho local 
management wouldn't hare It. They said their 
contract called for McKee Rankin, Next I went 
wltli EIDe F.llHlor. originating Phil Tressldnr. a 
strong old man's part, In 'Woman Against 
Woman,' nnd another good character part — a negro, 
In Tbe Old Kentucky Home.' From Miss Wis- 
ler'a company I passed to Nell Burgess' for his 
original production of "Hie County Fair,' at tho 
Twenty-third Street Theatre, 

"While I was playing In The County Fair' 
Denman Thompson came to see me, and then tnt 
there conceived the (dan ot sending out a number 
two 'Old Homestead' company, entrusting me 
wltb his Immortal character of Uncle Josh. I 
was with the 'Homestead' for five consecutive 
seasons, snd for four seasons wo played con- 
tinuously, never missing a night. Our tour cov- 
ered every city nnd town from Maine to Cali- 
fornia. When I began to tire of Undo Josh I 
took out a play of my own, called The Country 
Squire,' In which I toured for two season*. Then 
James Herno engaged roe for 'Shore Acres,' and 
I plsyed Uncle Nnt for two years. Next I went 
back to the 'Homestead' for a season, and then 
hack to 'Shore Acres.' 

"I am delighted with my present part. Squire 
Rsrtlett. In 7 "Way Down East.' Mrs. Parker 
has written one of thoso plays that move and In- 
terest all classes of theatregoers, Irrespective ot 
nice and country. My own part Is full of number- 
less little touclMs of huin.iti nature. In tin- last 
act, when old Bartlett extorts from the villain 
the confession that ho tietrayed tin- heroine into 
n mock marriage, tho old foil-Mr says: 'Now, how 
mi earth could you do a thing llko llial?' The 
line always gels a laugh, for It u-vesls the hon- 
esty and Ingenuousness of the old man's nature 
He Is one of those New Knglnnders who 'llvu ac- 
cunlln' t" Serlptcr,' and ihe villain's moral turpi- 
tude seems to him almost Incredible." 

Mr. Boyd continued with "'Way Down East" 
for some time. Loter he was strain with "The 
Old Homestead." For the Inst four season* he 
wss on the- stage ho was with "Rebecca of S-inny- 
brook Farm."

"Too Mint Cooks," the brisk and successful 
comedy by Frank Craven, Is firmly annuored at 
Hie Thlrty-iilntb Street Theatre, where It will 
remain until well Into the amusement season be- 
ginning next Autumn. William A. Brady remarks 
that "Too Many Cooks" Is one of Ihe very rare 
stage offerings within his long nnd exceptionally 
active career in management that seemed pre- 
destined to success. "Kvery once In a while, but 
not often." aays Mr. Brady, "s play comes along 
which hits the public fancy even before Ihe 
people have had a chnnce to pass upon lis merits. 
In these Infrequent Instances it sivms to be In 
Ihe air that the particular entertainment about 
to bo presented Is Just the thing to fill the bill. 
There Is no accounting for this slate of things, 
unless you believe In telepathy, or magnetic In- 
fluence, or some other Intangible process, Of 
course, after Too Many Cooks' was produced snd 
had made Its lilt. It was simple enough to ex- 
plain the large audiences, but what was It that 
drew a turn-sway crowd at the premiere In a one 
night town? Tell me that, and you will dispel one 
of the most Interesting ot the many mysteries In 
theatrical msiiitgcmcnt." 

"Till Thinus TiMT Goukt," st William A. 
Brady'* Playhouse, appears to grow greater to 
popularity at Hie waning point of the season 
than In ihe height of Winter. Mr. Brady ex- 
pects "The Things That Count" to lsst out tbe 
month of June at his thestre, but the present at- 
titude of tbe community forms an Indication that 
the New York run may extend considerably be- 
yond (list period.

NEWS FROM J. W, STERN A CO. 

In keeping with the wonderful strides and 
rehabilitation of tho dancing craze which has 
established such a strorghold all over the 
world, J. W. Stern & Co. have shown their 
superiority In this particular field by the 
publication of a series of dance numbors 
which have become a fixture and permanent 
f future in the realm of Terpsichore. 

Never before has tnere been such a sweep- 
ing, overwhelming success recorded by any 
other music publisher. Orchestra leaders, 
dunce artists, dealers and the public have 
attested to tbo genuineness and merit of the 
dni.ee successes published by the "House of 
Hits." Every famous Terpslcborcan artist 
features their numbers, and to put the seal 
of approval on their publications we might 
mention the following danco hits headlined 
by the famous dance nrtlsts, Mr. and Mrs. 
Vernon Castlo and Maurice and Florence 
Walton: "Castle Walk," "Castlo Half and 
Half," "Castle House Rag," 'Nasties In 
Europe," "Castle Maxlxe," ''Castlo Innova- 
tion Tango," "Castle Perfect Trot," "Castlo 
Valse Classlque," "Castle Innovation Waltz" 
("Esmeralda"), ".Maurice, .Hesitation," "Mau- 
rice iMattchleJie," "Maurice Irresistible 
Tango," "Maurice Junkman Rag" (trotl, 
"Maurice Brazilian Tango" (Tango Dreams). 
"Florence Maxlxe," "Maurice Qavotto 
(Will o' the Wisp), "Flame of Love" (Hesi- 
tation) and "Tickle Toes" (Trot). 

Other well known artists: Joan Sawyer 
nnd Jack Jarrott, Lew Qulnn. .Sebastian nnJ

ing their remarkably clever dancing exhibi- 
tions by featuring the following -Stern dance

tation), "La Furlana," "Kitty MncKay

and "Rio Brazilian Maxlxe" (Brcgelro). 
A NOW WAR SONO. 

"Across tho Rio Grande" Is the title of 
(he latest composition from tbo prolific pen 
of Ernest R. Ball, and It 1b also one of the 
first of the Mexican War songs to score an 
Immediate and emphatic bit. The words are 
the joint work of those lyricists, Dave Reed 
nml George Graff Jr., who have written tbo 
vorses for tho majority of Mr. Ball's ballads. 
Tho composer himself, appearing in vaude- 
ville with Maude Lambert, tried out the 
song first nt the Albambra Theatre on last 
Wednesday ovcnlng, and tho audience fairly 
went wild with enthusiasm. Thereafter It 
was the feature of every performance, and 
Its repetition at the Orpbcum Theatre, In 
Brooklyn, drew crowds of boys In blue from 
the navy yard and marine barracks who 
were not slow in catching the refrain and 
carrying It away with them. Messrs. M. 
Wltmark A Sons, the publishers, distributed 
the first professional copies and orchestra- 
tions to bandsmen and marines bound for 
Mexico, eo that the song will be heard In 
Vera Cruz and Tomplco within a week or so. 
The words tell the story : 
"Our Uncle Sam Is mild — but now thcy'vo 

got htm riled, 
He's ready to say: *Boys, let 'or go!' 
They'll fire that old salute, or else wo'll have 

to shoot, * 
And 'start something' down In Mexico; 
Our soldiers stand on tbo Rto Grunde, 
Our 'watchful waiting' Is through, 
They'll holler, too, for the old Red, White 

and Blue, 
When wo shout 'Remember the Alamo'." 

11EFHAIN. ' 

It's Just the snrao old story, 
They've got to cheer Old Glory, 
We're slow to begin, 
But when onco we're In 
We'll fight on 'til we win ; 
An Uncle Sammy's nephews are wait- 
ing his command. 
When up the hill they climb 
There'll be a hot old time. 
Across the Rio Grande.

Who In the douce 1s this Farlnelll? 
Is he a woman or Is she a man? 
Little groups of twos nnd threes stood out 
in front of the Palace Theatre Building last 
Saturday afternoon, and upon altematlngly 
sticking my dirty nose Into each group I 
found that their chatter was all centered on 
wmio "single singing" act that, so It Is 
claimed, will arouse more riot as a senss- 
tional "guest" act than anything the Amer- 
ican vaudeville stage, has been decorated 
with since "dear old 1 ' Tony Pastor opened 
his variety house on Bast Fourteenth Street. 
"Madame?" was tbo lost one to have us 
guosslng as to who she was. 

We knew "Madame?" was of tho sex 
known as the "moot deadly of the species," 
but it was being chined among these aforo 
said groups that even the sea of farlnelll 
will keep us spellbound and guessing after 
ho or she has made his or her debut beforo a 
New York audience. 

There was a Farlnelll (male) born in 
Naples, Italy, Jan. 24, 1705, but for the lovn 
of Mike Donlln, It can't bo him I Tho 1705 
Farlnelll simply took the name of his uncle, 
and 'Sacchl saw In Farlnelll's possession tho 
letters of nobility which ho wan required to 

Eroduco-wbcn admitted by the favor of tho 
ing of Spain into tho orders of Calatrava 
and St. Iago. Ills voice was soprano and 
wan said to be tho most beautiful over 
heard. In the year 1722 ho accompanied 
Taipora, of whom be was tho first and most 
distinguished pupil, to Home, and made his 
first appearance in "Eomcnc." Farlnelll 
was later pitted agnlnst n marvelous German 
trumpet player, vied with the instrument In 
holding and swelling a note of extraordinary 
lengtb, purity and volume, and excelled the 
Instrument In duration, brilliance and grad- 
ual enoscendo and diminuendo of tho note. 
(Deep stuff, eh?) 

And as Captain Laughing Larry walked to 
the plate with the hoses "stewed — 

But to get back to this new singing single 
who Is going to vie against us all to deter- 
mine "Its" sex, It Is said that Farlnelll pos- 
sesses a triple voice, nnd that the wonderful 



carefulness with which ho or she will bo 
presented In this country shall kcop audi- 
ences and the press In Hie dark for ns long 
a time ns lie or she wishes bo socrcte his or 
her gender. 

Probably ninny moro Irltlo groups may 
stand out mid along Broadway talking a In 
Farlnelll nnd each iliootlng It at tho other 
that he Knew this Karlnolll "beforo ho could 
shoot marbles" or ''she could say mommor."

peared at tho Taylor Opora llouso, In Tren-

".If I Had Homeoiio at llmno Mko You." nnd 
worked hard with both, even if the folks did 
prefer "Celebrating Alamo Day," and think- 
ing out loud whether they'd "go out ' or not 
this particular evening, 

Harry Howard chirped In with Will Von 
Tllzor's "I Mlsn You Most of All," and mndo 
most of tho furniture Jn the Alamo weep

Jo Jo and Del., tbo "beat little cabaret

Tho placo was beautifully trimmed up with 
a "million" strings of miniature Hairs, evory 
littlo soul had a paper cap on their daino and 
an "extra" tickler In their hand. It was 
knee deep in colored paper streamers, and 
all In all was a wonderful relehratlon that

Act III— tA Boom In one of Socco's Houses. 

Ono years later. 
Act IV— (An Ante-room, to the Court House. 

Six months later. 
Place— Anj large city. Tzkb — To day. 

At the time that "The Lure" waa playing 
to big business at the Maxlno Elliott Thea- 
tre, another "white elave" play was creating 
a aenaatlon at a theatre In 6an Francisco. 
It was "The Traffic," and it reached New 
lurk on tbe above date. 

Two things were against 4t from the start. 
New Yorkers had grown tired of the "red 
light" play, and many thought that "The 
Traffic" wan a film. These conditions nat- 
urally hurt business. 

"The Trnfflc" was, however, well •worth 
going to the Bronx to eee, 'for it Is a well 
written play with a powerful Btorv, truer 
to cxlatlng conditions than most of the plays 
•ud films dealing with white slavery. 

Acnes Berton and her alck slater, Elsie, 
are two daughters of porverty, They ''board" 
with Mra, Molly McQulre. a washer woman. 
Apnea, the elder and the stronger, has an 
admirer, Vic Connors^ who Is n procurer for 
houses of lll-famo. This fact Is, of course, 
unknown to Agues, her sitter and Mra. Mc- 
Qulre. Elslo becomes so alck that the doctor 
orders her to the country, and having no 
money to send her thcro or to pay her board, 
Agnes Is compelled to accept Connor's propo- 
sition to sell hcreelf, She accompanies him 
to a hotel, .but when there she decides not 
to accept the llfo of shame. But the slater's 
illness and tho blows of Connors quickly 
break her resolution to remain a good girl. 

A year posses and Agnes la now an Inmate 
of a disorderly houic. Connora had. In tho 
meantime, been paying Elsie's board In the 
country, and tho girl was about cured. He 
brings her to the very house In which Agnes 
Is staying. As Elsie Is a minor, the police 
search the place. When Agnes finds that 
her slater Is the captive sho shoots and kills 
Connors. 

•Ptio Is promptly arrester], tried and ac- 
quitted. The jury decided that Connors de- 
nerved his death. After deciding that no 
decent man would marry ber. Agnes decides 
to send Elsie to boarding school, while she 
(Acnes) will return to her life of shame. 

The company presenting "The Tralnc" Is, 
on tho whole, a very good one. The leading 
woman Is Nana Bryant, an actress of gen- 
uine talent. She had the role of Agnes, and 
she scored a distinct success in it. The role 
call) ono moment for delicate treatment, 
and strong emotional work the next, but at 
all times Mlas Bryant was moro than equal 
to Its demands. 

John C. Llvlngstono was the Vic Connor?. 
We havo never Seen Mr. Llvlngstono before, 
but we hope again to have that privilege, for 
he Is a very good actor. 

'Claire Sinclair, as a slangy product of tho 
Tenderloin, did clever work, and was respon- 
sible: for what little, comedy the play has to 
offer. 

ocorge M. Fee, as Mlnno Bacco. the head 
of tho vice syndicate, hnd a small role, but 
he made it stand out. Laura Adams played 
tbe rolo of Mra. McOuIre, tbe good natured 
Irian washerwoman, and was a warm favor- 
ite with the audience. 

Tbe rest of the company were good, and 
tbo production waa excellent. Kcicev. 

PALACE. 

•ELM lit F. IIOGERH, linn.) 

Dancing again proved tho feature attrac- 
tion here, when Joan Sawyer and John Jar- 
rett played a return engagement. They 
offered the snmo repertoire of dances as when 
laat seen, Tnoy met with a most cordial 
reception at tho conclusion of their excellent 
performance. 

Qrnco La Hue, making her re-appearance In 
vaudeville, presented a most refined singing 
specialty, and went over very big. (Beo New 
Acts.) 

Paul Conchas with bis new lntermeito, 
"Achilles and l'atrocles," cleaned up. Hla 
work Is porhups tho beat of Its kind ever wit- 
nessed In this elty. 

IUckcl and Watson, with their humorous 
mimical performance, had things tholr own 
way while they wore on. The large audi- 
ence took kindly to them at the start, and 
at tho conclusion of their act favored them 
With storms of applause. 

Billy Gould and Ucllo Asfctyn, with songs 
and gags galore, proved big favorites. They 
have changed their act somewhat, the new 
material meeting with tho desired results. 

ilennlne Shono and company, presenting 
1'dgnr Allan Woolfs comedy, called "Tho 
Inst of the Quakorg," was one of tho comedy 
hits of the Nil. Tho skit Is well written 
and tbe characters well portrayed by an 
even balanced company. 

Conlln, Bteclo and Carr, with their well 
known "Follies of Vaudovllle," were moat 
entertaining, tbo piano playing of Eddie 
Carr being quite a feature. 

Tbe Turners, skatorial artists. In the open- 
ing position, found things rather easy for 
them. The audience liked their work Im- 
mensely.

PROCTOR'S 125th STREET. 

(Wlf. A. MATTHEWS, HOB.) 

Quito a smooth running bill was on at 
this house for tbe first half of last week, 
beginning Monday, April 20, and when we 
caught the show Tuesday evening. 21. a 
modern dancing contest was put on after 
the regular show, or, In fact, before, as Jes- 
sie Sutherland, billed "The Water Nymph," 
was skinned ( /) out of doing a fourth show. 

"The Loser' was pretty well billed up as 
a headlines but Grant and Shirley (see New 
Acts) grabbed off tbe hit of the show, due 
to the wonderful dancing of tbe girl of the 
team. 

After tbe evening show was started with 
a two reel Domino feature, "Thieves," 
Fletcher, Llbby and McCabe (see New Acts) 
wero jumped from No. 7 position to the open- 
ing spot, because they thought they were 
booked for a benefit at Carnegie Lyceum 
that evening. The trio were rushed down 
to the Lyceum In a ($8.60) taxi, only to 
find that they were a bit early, as the benefit 
waa not until Wednesday night, (Ha, ha I 
by all.) 

Following them Frank and Hubert, a 
honest to goodness small time black face man 
and woman duo, got by because the "fat gal" 
Is Bomewhat of a rough comedienne and 
rings In a "singing" dog (tbat didn't work 
with the Woods Comedy Four) for a finish. 

Caroline Werner and company la how Gen- 
evieve Warner and her pretty violinist part- 
ner were programed. Miss Wamer is all 
that is ascentlal with tbe harp music, and 
ber partner la her equal aa a violin artist, 
and deserves more than "and company." The 
girls havo a clever musical offering now, and 
singing Is unnecessary to help them towards 
work In tbo hotter salaried bouses should 
Miss Warner's partner be allowed at least 
one change of costume to tbe three she 
herself makes. 

Tony Rlccardl and hla company of three 
presented a very Interesting dramatic sketch. 
with one song, entitled 'The Blacksmith." 
It has tbo earmarks of longllfe. and should 
rake In more money to pay the excets ex- 
penso of the horse used, besides the laying In 
of a stock of spaghetti, which Rlccardl is an 
expert In devouring, All four parts are 
equally well acted. 

Jessie Sutherland (at supper time) tewed, 
ate a few sirloins, and then fell asleep In a 
glaas tank of water, timed by a male an- 
nouncer. Mlas Sutherland hag a ntce cool 
act for tbo Summer besides possesglns; figure 
enough to make any flab pleased with her 
water work. 

Wllklns and Wllklna did very well here In 
their songs and tbe eccentric dancing of 
the man, 

Then noinothlnir Chat resembled a Tuxedo 
suit crept out ana nearly otier the "chewlag 
gum" piano player. John Lurape, Lieut Bob 
Speck and Detective Jack Ilaggcrty said It 
was 'Manager William Matthews. A third 
look convinced us that It was — although tbo 
dialect resembled a good monologue artist 
seen here the week previous. At any rate 
the little manager got a trig hand from his 
patrons, and then announced that the Dan- 
cing Contest wag to be further graced by the 
presence of Dorothy Russell and Leon Van 
Dell as added starters for the three silver 
loving cups at stake. 

First to compete were Golden and Rich- 
mond, exhibiting their ability in tbe hesita- 
tion. Verdict— fair. 

Langdon and Hoffman, tango dance ar- 
tints, were next. Verdict — good. 

■Cerettd and Kelly came on In No. 8 spot 
and cleaned up as "novelty" dancers. Ver- 
dict — second cup. 

Victoria and Stanley proved themselves a 
most graceful couple of exponents of the 
maxlxo and one-step, and dressed up Tery 
proper for the occasion. They easily won 
over all other "amateur" competitors, when 
considering it was a modern dance affair, 
Verdlot — (third oup. 

Next and last came Dorothy Russell, look- 
ing transparently pretty in a black veiling 
(lose fitting gown, overdraped from the 
shoulders with a white satin scurflng, and 
her partner, Leon Van Dell, in evening suit. 
Accompanied by Dorothy's own colored or- 
chestra on the stage, she and Mr. Van Dell 
danced the Tango Argentine first, Flirtation 
Walts next, and finished with a lengthy 
Maxlxo BraMHonne, and carried off the 
honors of — flrgt cup. And mother Lillian 
wore a smile of satisfaction In a stago box, 
and scorched her plump little gloves applaud- 
ing for her Dorothy. 

It was a big treat for the West Side Har- 
lemltcs to witness Lillian and Dorothy Rus- 
sell all In ono night, nnd when the news cir- 
culated that fair Lillian was "In," Mrs. 
Moore, of Pittsburgh, Pa., had tho hardest 
sort of a time squcexlng out onto One Hun- 
dred Hnd Twenty-ftfth street after the show, 
and Just before Manager Matthews and his 
police escort and party blew around to ex- 
Capt. Daly's Little Delmonlco "hole In the 
wall" eats emporium for steamed "anlmnlR" 
and what made more souls than Georgle 
Ehret and Jake Ruoert famouslv prosperous. 

All In all. It was n modern night In every 
respect, and tho next modern danco meet 
will bo held hero on Tuesday evening. May 5. 

Hits of the evening: Grant and Shirley, 
Kussoll and Van Dell. Lillian Russell and

LOEWS SEVtHTH AVENUE. 

(JAKE LUBIN, MOB.) 

Tbe usual crowd filled Marcus Loew's up- 
town theatre evening of April 21, and a bill 
of exceptional merit was shown. For the 
flrht halt of the week (20-22), Parise, an 
accordion player, working most of the time 
in a spotlight, opened the show and played 
very well. Parise would do well to crack a 
smile. He gives the impression that be is 
"watching for tho finish." He got by nicely. 

'Harry Von Tllzer'a Istest song with slide*. 
"Do You Take This Woman for Your Lawful 
Wife?" was well put over by a male singer. 

Wbeeler Earl and Vera Curtis •offered a 
neat sloping, talking and dancing skit, "In 
two," showing a hotel lobby, with Miss Cur- 
tis doing a public stenographer port. Their 
line of talk is bright and anappy, and tbe 
song, with extra choruses of "Daddy Did a 
Wonderful Thing." put on by Mr. Earl, is 
dtcervlng of special mention. Mr. Earl can 
sure put over a song. Miss Curtis is a neat 
dancer, but should not attempt to sing. For 
some reason or other Earl and Curtis do not 
bill themselves "and company" as some 
recognition for little Freddie Steele, who Is 
a valuable asset of the act. He looks neat, 
Las a very good singing voice and dances 
well. It would be fttfr to Freddie. Tbe act 
was a success here. 

Clarence Wilbur, with monologue and song, 
•was well received. That Clarence can slug 
and knows what numbers to use to show his 
voice to itg begt advantage Is not argued. 
The monologue Is an exceptionally good one. 

"The Winning Widows,*' with Percy Chap- 
man and six young women, got by mildly. 
Mr. Chapman carries tbe act over with his 
race track hit and bis dancing. The girls 
do not work as though they bad rehearsed 
too much, bat tbey cannot be blamed as 
winning widows for the wearing of the red 
roses. The feature singing number by Mr. 
Chapman and the girls, "Boy, 81s, Give TJs a 
Kiss," wns the best 'business of It all. 

Rockwell and Wood, two men, were the 
"clean-up" of the bill. Their comedy la 
chuck full of laughs. The "Nance" by ono la 
not overdone. He does play up "Say Al" 
pretty strong, but It gets a laugh each time. 
It is a .talking act throughout, except for 
ono gong, "On the Old Dominion Line, with 
a hunch of extra choruses. 

Cliff Bailey, the barrel! jumper, did some 
very daring stunts ond pleased greatly. 

The K. & E. feature picture. "Woman 
Against Woman," was a good production. 

The bill for 28-26 was opened by Floyd 
Mack singing "Pullman Porters," and fol- 
lowing with an Imitation of musical Instru- 
ments. But Floyd's dancing is his forte. 
He features a barn dance clog and closes hla 
turn with a few handsprings. A little more 
■dancing and It would be improved. 

Erdman and Ruben, a man and woman, in 
a singing talking, dancing and piano-playing 
turn, worked under difficulties with tbe house 
orchestra, aa their music was played "way 
off." The young lady recited "Poor Rich 
Kids," and got a whole lot oat of it. The 
man attempts to do too much, as be sings 
"That Shakespearean Rag." then plays a 
feto solos on tho piano. They close with a 
song, "Do Tbey Love It?" and did well. 

Ruth Powell la a violinist with a very 
pleasing manner, who plays ragtime and 
classic music very well. A vast Improvement 
would be a new style of wearing her hair. 
Sho Is an attractive girl and should not 
arrange her hair to marr her appearance. 
Sho was well received. 

Roland West presented Henry B. Toomer 
and company, in "Bide Lights." Tho act 
opens In two, showing the stage entrance to 
the "Idle Hour," with tbe stage manager 
sitting outside the door. (Tho house only 
plays two acts, a team and a single.) Tbo 
team, two men talking and etnging, are 
"elcscd" nnd thrown out of the house, and It'a 
right here that the men do the best work. 
The first drop Is lifted and shows "a stage" 
on the stage, and the acts do their turns. 
Some of the general business is good, but 
much of tho talk got over the beads of Joko 
Lubln's audience last Thursday evening. Tbe 
company consists of three men and one 
woman. 

% ,The real knockoot of tbe bill was Nell 
McKinley. He sang himself Into Instant 
favor, using all real, live, up-to-tho-minute 
numbers, "I Love the Ladies," "Who Paid 
the Rent for Mra. Rip Van Winkle?" his 
own version of "Lasy Mary. Will You Get 
Dp?" and "Do You Take This Woman for 
Your Lawful Wife?" assisted by a young

■them. H1b closing numbcr 1 _"If I Had Some-

made a real neat speech Inst as though ho 
was used to It. (That • Sit On the Bed 7 ' gag

Grey and Peters, a two men bicycle act, 
offer a series of good wheel stunte. all well 
sprlngled with comedy. 

The feature ploturo was "Loyalty," In 
five reels, produced by the Electric Film Co. 
A clever, pretty production. Pete. 

PROCTOR'S lTOlTY-THIia) ST, 

(RANK UCCDNB, Man.) 

One of tbe "mildest" bills (April 23-20), 
with tbe possible exception of two acts, 
that has been seen here In some "halves' 1 
was In evideuee here last week, probably 
appearing moro no because the highly touted 
feature, "The Boys nnd Girls of Avenue B," 
is as mediocre a turn as any that has been 
seen in the local small timers in seasons. It 
Is composed of three boyg, as messengers ; 
one doing Dutch comedian, and three girls 
two as operators and tho principal (blonde) 
os eblef clerk or some such capacity. The 
comedian has an inclination to show what 
he really can do, but tho "upstage" chap 

2° ln ? a u. ,. Nanc f P" rt th,n > ts »» ™» o* hla 
vocal ability that he works to degtroy any 
"thought" bis audience might Imagine of him. 
The comedian Is the only goodness to it all, 
and tho girlies look well at the desk. "Pull- 
inau Porters" was led best by the smallest 
girl, but the following conductor business la 
past redemption. 

Bobby Walthour nnd the Princeton Sisters 
(one of the exceptions) opened tho show 



after a Flying A inconsistent picture, en- 
titled "The Certulnty of Man," was reeled off. 
Walthour and the Princeton girls perform 
tricks creditably on bicycles and unlcycles, 
and make a neatly dressed ''pop" act The 
dark girl's climbing about Walthour wblle 
circling the stage Is gracefully done, and 
drew high honors down town here. 

Frank and Hllbert. black face comedienne 
and black face man, went over fairly good 
with tbe singing dog to finish up with. 

Wally Van, featured hi a "Nonce" part 
In a Vltsgraph comedy picture, "The Chicken 
Inspector/' waa a giggle or laugh all the way 
In next position. 

Tony Rlcardl and company, in "The Black- 
smith, gave as good a performance of tbe 
dramatic playlet as tbey aid up town. 

It was left for Nat Brown (the other ac- 
ceptlon) to clean up the applause thing. 
Brawn went Into his German political speech 
to make a sweep, and was elected a fun* 
maker, unanimously'. 

The Booth Trio (ttiree men and a piano) 
sang trios, one gave a piano specialty, and 
a comedy way of putting "BeanB 1 ' over scored 
for another. Tbe third equals things with 
a -waltz song. Cabaret style, but lacking the 
usual hltch-a-coo sway. Tod.

CON T. KENNEDY NOTES. 

ffipsotat to T11 a OLirrca.) 

Tolsa, Okla., April 22, 1914. 

The Con T. Kennerdy Snows opened to a crowd 
Of some 3,000 people (Monday evening, on tbe sod 
•t Ktrkpatrlck Heights In the pruqieroua oil com- 
nrtunlhy of Tuliu. snd all tbe shows enjoyed a very 
liberal patronage. Tho mammoth sutodroene. under 
the personal direction of J. Frans Smith, assisted 
by his ablo manager, Billy Schell, a former 
bicycle champion, had all the business that Ibo 
big tnii-llke racetrack could handle. During tbe 
tryout of the track BUI Yant and bis mccbaiiTclan. 
Wild Jack O'Neill, bad a nasty spill when Ihe 
front axel of one of the racing cars snapped at 
the hub, the toys escaping with severil laecera- 
Mono and bruises. Tbe new decorative scheme In- 
augurated by Mr. Kennedy of completely covering 
the Midway with a canopy of streamer pennsnto. 
and dressing all attractions from peak to ground 
with the varicolored Hags of all nations presents 
a most plcn«lng ipppesranee. The Turner Show, 
the Klass Museum nnd Glllmon's Mystics divided 
the long show business while He' Usckmen Animal 
Circus, Lcota Fashion Piste Girls snd the Mur- 
ray & Mack Comic Opera stood up qulto a few, 

Tuesday nlgbt was newsboy*' night, and about 
seventy-live of the street circulars of the dill/ 
sheets were the guests of the management, and 
tbe youngsters romped through the snows, and 
scampered about tbe ground! enjoying themselves 
hugely, and when Al Myers cut on* tbe lights ou 
tbe lot the Juvenile newt sgenta left the big play 
ground munching goobers, and ready to advise all 
as to tbe merits of the big recreation park. 

The shows closed their Tulsa engagement Satur- 
day night, playing two throe-day stands next week, 
Xnlng at OOHInrrlllo Monday, April 27, for 
re days, snd playing tbe same length engage- 
ment at Bartsesvllle, beginning April 80. 

It baa always been contended that It Is possible 
for a thirty-car organisation to pniOtatily plsy two 
stands a week, providing tbe getting op snd down 
snd on the cars is handled with system and 
dispatch, Tbe Kennedy train, now electrically 
lighted. Is loaded by Ore to live-thirty lo the 
morning, and gets up and ready to open In six 
boom after arrival to town, so that (be experi- 
ment of two a week will be watched with Interest 
by other organizations.

There isn't an act in Vaudeville that 
wouldn't admit that TOMMY GRAY is 
one of the top-notch writers of comedy 
sketches and funny songs; it is a matter 
of common knowledge, that Managers are 
frequently influenced by acts using Tommy 
Gray's material. 

"Tommy" (he likes us to call him that) 
sang over a song for us the other day that 
he had written for an act, entitled "FIDO 
B A HOT DOG N0W'\ Before he knew 
what struck him, Phil Kornheiser, our 
professional manager, locked him in a 
piano room and didn't let him go out 
again until he had a contract for the 
song* 

You couldn't buy this song from ''Tommy'' 
under $500* 

We felt we owed it to our professional 
friends to "stake them" to a good comedy 
song and as we were looking for one so 
long for that purpose, that we had to hug 
the song and ''Tommy" to be able to hand 
it to our friends. 

In order to draw attention to this adver- 
tisement we are going to print the title 
again, but this time in large type. 




IS A HOT DOB NOW 

The Original Frankfurter Song 

We told you all about "Tommy", but we don't want to 
overlook the fact that CHARLES McCARRON and RAT 
WALKER chipped in a stack of "Reds," by writing one of 
the cleverest melodies ever composed for a comedy song* 
This then, is an invitation for our friends to write in to 
get THEIR COPY of "FIDO", the "Hot" comedy song.

The new monologue which Nat Wills Is ns<nr

ally pronoxmxed to be the beet one he bas ever 
bad. Aa a result, Mr. Wilis has made a further 
contract with Mr. Madison, bx which Ibe latter 
will supply him each week with humorons com- 
ments on latest topical events. The sane author 
also wrote Rwuoy and sBent's new act, wtalrn bas

Is largely populated with colored people, s.nd nmst 
of the ertirtalnen will be colored. Vaudeville 
and picture, will. be the policy, . . . 











For tbe special benefit of all my friends In and out of the profession. But -I will still retain all my Interests in the great Columbia Amusement Company and my franchise, lanown 
from Maine to California as "Al Beeves Beauty Bhow.* Z have specially engaged the famous EDGAS BIXT.EY and his wife, EDITH SWAN, to do their big vaudeville acta, produoe and 
manage my show next season, and no question but what the show will be a revelation and differently constructed than any other burlesque organisation ever seen in America. The show 
will consist of seven acts, seven beautiful changes of scenery, oostumes and eleatrical effects. Fifty-four people will be required in the cas t an d ei ght super s, making a total of sirty-two 
people on my stage. A three thousand dollar production of art pictures, the handsomest ever seen in America and headed by the beautiful HELEN WESTERN, will close the show. 

P. S.— Might also state I may play twelve to fifteen weeks personally, in our big Columbia Amusement Company houses next season, where I have always done a phenomenal 
business and made a handsome profit I also want to thank MR WM. HAMMERSTEIN, ME. PAT CASEY, and DOCTOR IrOTHROP for their kind and generous vaudeville offers. Also 
Wish to state that my old aide-kick, ANDY LEWIS, leaves mo this season to go in busiress for himself. I wish him every success, and only hope he will be as successful aa I have been. 
And this same wish goes for every one on earth, as 'Tve got mine." "Give me credit." Good-by, good night and good luck. Your old pal*

Fletcher, Llbby and McCabe, 

Pboctob'8 12Stu stbeet, Atbil 21. 

Ooe of the mop op seta of the bill here first 
half of lost week was this three-act, composed 
of two men (Btralght and tough messenger boy 
comedian) and 'plump" woman, who puts you In 
mind of Mae West In face and partly by the way 
ahe works. 

The two men open In King;, bat are Interrupted 
by fbe entrance of the woman, la plumed ■"pic- 
ture" bat and pink cloak over green gown. "Busi- 
ness of lnBultlng," by the messenger boy, for 
which she bands him s slap in the klsa thins, 
and mates an exit, to allow the surprised attitude 
and retorts of comedian to arouse good laughs. 
The woman's return (minus cloak) for singing 
ibe Terse and being Joined by partners for trio- 
lng "Good Ship Mary Ann," and repeating It for 
close harmony. 

Patter between all three to follow leads up to 
the comedian being "flopped" again, this time by 
the man and be (comedian) la left slouo for a 
laudable monologue bit and a burlesque sln^ng 
spell for further laughs. 

The woman, changed to pretty evening gown, 
follows with "Sunshine and Roses." In which 
her high cotes seemed Iter easiest to reader. 
Btralght man's return In fall dress, silk bat and 
cane, aau after chatter with comedian for a lau,:h 
or two more. "be. and the woman daet "I Don't 
Wants, '* with her repeating with the comedian 
for 'Yoa fat rascal.' and tickle business by him 
and trio repeat for finale. 

Corking good la'ugh producing "pop-" time tarn, 
bat one line from the comedian that rather re- 
flects on bis partners, and hurts the act more than 
it "gets a laugh" oonld be sank. He is a good 
comedian, and although the other two are not tho 
best singers In the business he needs them just na 
much, for Fletcher, Ltbby and McCabe fit Into 
their present act nicely, and shouldn't lay off 
much. A few new songs would be a good more. 
*lx bows this particular evening. Fifteen min- 
utes, la one. Tod.

Grace La Rue. 

Paljcb, Uondai, auiinie, Apso, 2T. 

Making her re-appearance In vaudeville titer 
a successful tour In England. Miss La Rue pre- 
sented a refined singing specialty, offering a re- 
liertolre of six songs, esca one being sa encore 
winner. She makes ten changea of costume, the 
last one being- a creation of blsck with stripes 
of silver spangles that caused the women In the 
audience to sit up and take notice. It is per- 
lisps, the most gorgeous dress sten in vaudeville 
la gome time. 

Her songs Included: "Art," "My Little Grsy 
nume in the West," "If I Hsd Someone Like 
You at Home." "Love and Springtime," "Too 
Tango Dream," and 'Tanamnla. 1 ' 

Miss La Roe sang In splendid voice, and was 
assisted by a pianist. Jack.

Dettl ninth. 
Bxufobd, Bbookltx, Apbh, 24. 

Making ber entrance in a wblte coat over a 
pink gown, and hat trimmed with white feather*, 
tinging "If I Had Someone at Borne Like You 
I Wouldn't Want to Go Oat," Miss Bluth looked 
wall. 

"Mary, You're a Little Bit Old Fashioned" 
■was ber next number, without the bat and coat. 
For her last offering. "Twentieth Century Bag." 
ahe changed to a blsck velvet knlckerbocker suit. 

Miss Biota Is on a par with the average small 
time single. Ten minutes, In one. Hid. 



Grant and Shirley. 

Pboctob'8 123th Sibxet, Aran. 21. 

Within a special velvet boxed set In three, this 
couple offer a singing and modern dancing act that 
features the girl's grace and charm as a dancer 
to carry the turn over to what big results it de- 
rived at this house. 

This pretty young woman does not belong on the 
small time for a moment. She possesses more of 
every arcentlal need than more than a few "so- 
called" big time female dancers have at the!" 
toe tips or la the grace that Is necessary la all 
other movements of their anatomy. She Is a 
dancer from head to foot, without leading yoa to 
conceive the Idea that the statement means any- 
thing bat proper movements. 

After an opening song, Grant snd Shirley offer a 
hesitation dance, with the girl continuing a steady 
natural smile that speaks out her personality la 
itself. 

Following this finely executed bit of dancing 
the young man sings "Woo Paid the Rent for 
Mrs. Kip Van Winkle T" so aa Us partner can 
change from a pink to a sort of Colonial gown, 
and hat, and with his exit she offers a toe dancing 
specialty that began to make ber audience here 
sit up straight. 

Another song, "He's a Devil," by the man, to 
permit another ebange by the girl to a white 
gown, and their finish wilh tho maxlxe dance. 

The man looks, sings nnd works well enough 
with the girl for this "time," but he will never 
do for ber If she desires to secure "big time" 
booking wnere ahe belongs. About eleven minutes.

Camlle Jewell. 

Union Squabs, Evsaemo Aran, 28. 

-Miss Jewell opens with "Who Pall the Rent 
for Mrs. Blp Van Winkle," wearing a pretty red 
dress of light material. Then changing to a pale 
blue and white lace dress, rather oddly construct- 
ed, Mlae Jewell offers "Mary. You're a Little Bit

YOUNG BUFFALO SHOWS OPEN. 



OPENING MOST AUSPICIOUS. 



BT iu Tuauiaa, 



MoSta, 111., April 23, 1014. 

The day that Peoria has been looking forward 
to ever since the newspapers announced that Sat- 
urday April 26. would see the opening of the 
Ytrang Buffalo Shows snd Cheyenne Days. Peoria 
has alwaya been particularly proud of this show. 
because Peoria never really was on tbe show world 
map until Young Buffalo sprang Into being, and 
Peoria la Justly proud of the fact that ss real a 
Wild Weat abow as ever opened Its doors to tbe 
public Is strictly s Peoria product. 

The enthusiasm of the home rooters was well 
shown to-day with a capacity performance this 
afternoon, which will no doulil be reocatrd to- 
night. In some Interviews with Mr. Seaver, tho 
wonderfully energetic little corporal wbo has 
bullded this show, he haa expressed a desire to 
have the Yoang Buffalo Shows a real Wild West 
exhibition: that la, giving an entire program of 
strictly Wild West features. That Is what the 
abow consists of this oessoa, and the Instant ap- 
proval tbls innovation was met with liy the peoplo 
shows that its success Is assured. We have plenty 
of cowboys, cowgirls and Indians, and from the 
initial performance this aflenioon It Is a,ife to 
stale that each and every one Is a performer. 

The show opens with the customary grand entry. 
At Ibe head are (Jul. Fred T. Cummins, whose 
name la so Indelibly llnktd with the Hammer 
tenled attractions, and Tex Cooper, wbo la like- 
wise s country-wide figure of prominence. Follow- 
ing Is one of the most excellent assortment of 
rlilers it bsa ever been my pleasure to tee. 

The introduction ia next wherein sre Introduced 
tbe various bands of Indians cowboys snd girls, 
who afterward take part In (he program, 

Tbe races are next, thrilling contests between 
cov.boys aod cowgirls, Indians ami Mexican*:. 

Next the familiar hold-up of the Overland atagc- 
coach with the attack noon It by the Indians with 
tbe rencgado white leaders. A new thing is hero 
Introduced. During the bailie one Indian is 
killed, and this number is followed with a very 
Interesting spectacle of how the Indiana care for 
the removal of tho braves who low their Uvea 
to conflict. 

Tbe hlgh-sehoot hones follow, and a better 
trained and worked company of meuage horses 



would be bard to locate. Etta Myers, Ida Paolo*, 
Gladys King and Jliuiato Eiehot take tbe prom- 
inent parts. Htta Myers closes tbe number with 
the famous Young Buffalo tangoing anise, King 
Edward. 

Following tbls Is tbe pony express, very well 
ridden by Montana Meecliy. 

Snadrllle on horseback by cowboys tod cow. 
. 

Trick tiding by lbs Cossacks snd Etta Myers. 
Tin. Cossacks put up their usual exhibition, while 
atlas Myers, with bar darlug stunts on the back 
of a fast dying horw, won round after round of 
applause. 

The cavalry manoeuvres and massing of tbe 
colors by all of tbe riders on the abow was next. 
Tbls Is s very intricate mounted drill In which 
mast sixty or seventy riders take part, and Is s 
most impressive and beautiful feature. 

The Indian war dance Is next. Tbe band of 
fifty Indians fill the arena In front of the re- 
serves and perform their weird dances. 

Roping by the cowboys snd Indians, very clever, 
Dave Bald Eagle, an Indian, showing some es- 
pecially good roping, closing with a six horse 
catch, 

The wedding nd ehtravlti la a Western eew 
camp followed, with a most excellently wall 
trained horse doing tbe taxi-meter set. White 
this Is going on the cowboys snd girls sre In- 
dulging In the Western sports, quadrilles, chase 
for a bride, pick-ups, hauling the boras thief 
around tbe arena, etc, 

The bucking horses, Just before tbe finale, close 
tbe show, snd they sre bucking burses tbst surely 
do buck. Tom Eckard, on Bsld Hornet; Joe He- 
tuMtlan, on Gray Eagle; Ed. Lewis, on Funeral 
Wagon, and Fred Ilurna, on the bucking mule, 
Maude, were the features of this number. 

Taken altogether tbe Yoang Buffalo Shows have 
more than sustained their reputation, and that Is 
quite a record to live up to. They have always 
given a Wild West show that entertained from 
the first to the last, and tbe exhibition tbls year 
is no exception. Great credit la due to those 
wbo have bad the preparation of tbe show In 
hand for the wonderfully smooth performance 
given this afternoon.

December 15, 1013, the Jesse Lasky Fea- 
ture Play Co. purchased ten thousand feet 
t of M, 1*. film from tbe Eastman Kodak Co., 
which totaled $400. Tbc film ordered was 
to have been of tbc bent stock, and was to 
j be perforated, sixty-four holes to tlic foot 
when the consignment Ms received It was 
discovered, bo tbc complaint alleges, In tbc 
suit which tbc Lasky Feature Flay Co. has 
Instituted In tbo Supreme Court, of New 
York, against tbo Eastman concern, tbc per- 
forations wore very Irregular, sometimes run- 
ning slity-llvo holes to tbc foot, and at 
other times sixty-four. This Inconsistency 
created all sorts of trouble for the LnBlty 
Co.. bo the affidavit states, tbc least of which 
was tho necessity of rc-Mmlog several scenes 
of the "Squaw Man," their initial release, 
at a largo expense, which Incidentally caused 
Cecil Dumllle, ijosky's chief stage director, 
to make a transcontinental Journey all tbo 
tvay from Los Angeles, lu order to superin- 
tend tho re- taking process. Furthermore, tho 
negatives turned out rough and unsatisfac- 
tory, and part of tho •work of developing had 
to bo done over again. Hence the action at 
lav, Btarted April 24, In which the Lasky W. 
V. Co. wishes to be rc-lmburscd to tbc tunc 
of «23-375. Jules D. Ilrulntour, tho N. V. 
agent of the Eastman. Kodak Co., Is named 
as co-defendant. 

KLAW A ERLANGER SECURE TEM- 
PORARY INJUNCTION AGAINST l.'NI- 
VHHSAL FILM MFG. CO.— SI' IT OVER 
"FATAL WEDDING." 
Klaw & Monger secured a temporary In- 
junction April 24, restraining the Universal 
Film .Mfg. Co. from offering for exhibition 
a one reel photoplay version of "The Fatal 
Wedding." The Unlvcrsal's "Fatal Wed- 
ding" carries an entirely different story from 
the veil known melodrama, and, In fact la 
ii "comedy" picture. 

However, David Gorbcr, tho attorney for K. 
ft E., explained to Judge Davis, who hoard 
tno prayer for the restraining Injunction, in 
1ho supremo Court of New York, last Fri- 
day, that tho Unlversal's single rcelcr, which 
■nan booked for release April 31, might cause 
considerable misunderstanding through tho 
similarity of titles with, IC. & E.'s film ver- 
sion of tbo play. Judge Davis granted tbo 
temporary order, which forbade tbc releaso 
of the picture by tho Universal Film Mfg. Co. 
The argument to show cause why this order 
should not ho made permanent came up bc- 
for Judge Lehman Monday, April 27.

their intention last week of entering tho 
I'lm manufacturing game on a large scale.

SELI G SNAP-S HOTS. 

At the Edcndule studio of the Scllg Foly* 
MM Co., in California, lost Week, was pro- 
duced an uproarious comedy, entitled "Mel- 
icrdramcr," in which autlqunted forms of n 
once popular umusonieut were reproduced 
With burlcsiiuc trimmings, with harrowing 
tltaos for both tho "herowlno" and tho 
"hero," In one scene the former wne sup- 
posed to faint, and did It so realistically 
and violently that she throw her head back 
r.nd caught tho leading actor such a crack 
on the Jaw thait he was knocked out for tho 
count. Tbo camera man wus tickled vastly 
over this Incident, liut the leading tnun was 
boic. 

There la Iota of activity nowadays in tho 
big Sells Polyscope studios, in Chicago, in 
several heavy Indoor productions aim nu- 
merous plays an the field. The line of auto- 
uio'vllca connected with the plant is kept 
nl most continuously busy taking actors to 
und from advantageous locations for scenes 
In which they are engaged. 

Aro:i,E Land, of the Sellg Folyscope Co., 
at Edcudalc, Cat., Is noting In two dims at 
once, one being a pretentious four-reclcr.

It will be interesting to note the contrasts

this wonderful picture, the largest that has 
ever been made in America, was accom- 

Ynnled by Mr. Stronach with signal success. 
a his score, appropriate to scenes and 
events of "The Spoilers," composer Stronach 
advanced no less than sixty-four selections 
from as many different composers as suitable 
to the big urge of the work, and gave "The 
Star 'Spangled Banner" as the finale. Ills 
musical accompaniment was highly accredited 
by critical audience. 

TilB Immediate popularity of the Hearst- 
Sellg News Pictorial baa necessitated two 
releases per week, which will be made on 
-Mondays and Thursdays. It has secured re- 
markable advantages for picturing the war 
news having a number of camera men with 
tbo fleets on both sides of Mexico, and also 
with the armies in the Held, and no effort 
will be spared to secure the best nnd latest 
news of our advance In Mexico for this ser- 
vice. Among tlic features of this week's re- 
leases arc: General Coxey leads his "jobless" 
army on to Washington, .Service on Mount

II. W. SAVAGE, INC., SECURES CON. 

TINUANCE OF TEMPOIIARY IN- 

JUNCTION IN "MADAME X" CASE— 

W. C. KARRER AGAIN ENJOINED 

H Y JUDGE WEEKS. 

Henry W. Savage, Inc., which firm con- 
trols the rights for "Madame X," was grant- 
ed an order continuing a temporary injunc- 
tion by Judge Weeks, In the Supreme Court, 
K. Y., last week, secured last February 
against Wm. Karrer. who operates a 'dim 
exchange at 1482 Broadway, and who has 
been offering for exhibition a photoplay, en- 
titled "Miigda, a Modern Madame X." 

II. W. Savage, Inc., is suing William 
Karrer for $10,000 damages. This suit has 
not come to trial as yet. Mr. Karrer, . la 
making a defensive plea, stated that "Mngda, 
a Modern Madame a," was made in Spain, 
and the Wilknr Co., the manufacturers, hail 
advertised tho photoplay as "not founded on 
any play." On the other band Madison K. 
Corey, for tho Savage Co., contended that the 
two stories were decidedly similar in sev- 
eral respects. 

It was further claimed by tho plaintiff 
that tho advertising matter of the defendant, 
Karrer, was misleading and that the words 
"Madame X" wore in hold typo white the 
remainder of tho title, "Mngda, & Modem"— 
Was printed In lower case letters. 

Judge Weeks upheld tbo plaintiff's conten- 
tion, and sold : "For the purpose of protect- 
ing the public from deception nnd preventing 
unfair competition, tho plaintiff Is entitle!) 
to have the injunction continued. Motion 
granted." 

JUDGE TUTniLL ORDERS GLEASON 
TO GRANT PERMIT FOR CHICAGO 
EXHIBITION OF "MAGDA." 

Acting on the motion of Attorney James 
3 Brady, who represented Uie owners of 
"Magda, a Modern Madame X," Judge ltleli- 
nrd S. TiiUitll, sitting in the Circuit Court 
of Chicago. April 23, issued an order In- 
structing Police Chief Glcnson to allow tbo 
exhibition of the picture known as "Magda, 
a Modem Madame X." 

The Chicago Police Chief had refused to 
inspect the picture for the purpose of cen- 
raring the came, if necessary, it is said, and 
Major Funkhnuscr, his assistant, had refused 
the necessary permit. The order was issued 
in th° form of a mandamus. In view of the 
fact Hint the recent proceedings in New York, 
in which 11. W. Savage, Inc., secured an in- 
junction. "Magda" seems to lie traveling a 
road alternately strewn with thorns and 
loses. 

On tho other hand, the decision of Judge 
Tutihlll may be far-reaching in regard to tho 
future tactics to be pursued by Major Funk- 
liauRer and his censorship board, it is as- 
suredly of deep Interest to all OMcagoans 
engaged In the film game.

A five reel feature fashioned with common sense, produced by 
the cleverest men that reasonable capital could secure and 
based upon the idea that motion pictures can be acted properly only by trained 
motion picture actors. 

Ine fact that legitimate, start have Veen disappointments or utter failures in nearly all of the expensive pictures in 
Khlch then hare appeared, proves the soundness of our idea. 

The drawing power of the legitimate Btar is limited to the two dollar class in a few large cities, but the motion 
picture favorites have a following in every city, town and village, amongst the classes whose nickels and dimes 
make motion pictures possible. 

"The littlest Rebel" ^&s one of the most successful war dramas ever written. It 
crowded a prominent Broadway Theatre for a whole season and did a monster 
business throughout the country. As a photoplay it will be a genuine masterpiece 
— high in quality yet popular in theme.

ECLAIR'S "WESTERNS.*' 

The Western branch of the Eclair Film 
Co., Inc., located at Tucson, Ariz., has been 
turning out some of the most remarkable 
Western film productions of the present year, 
and the masterpiece, entitled •TboCaballero's 
Way," from tbc story by O. Henry, which 
the western organization recently produced, 
has been unanimously voted by the critics 
"the greatest Western ever made." 

In line with the stated policy of filming 
tho stories of well known authors, the 
ArUona aggregation of Eclair players is 
now busy working on two productions from 
the pen of Eugene iManlove llhodes. Per- 
haps no Western writer, unless we accept 
Dan Coolldgc, has written more truly and 
sincerely of that territory beyond the Heckles 
and the Southwest than Mr. Rhodes. He 
was brought up on the country of which he 
writes, and is na familiar with the at- 
rioipliore aud well known traditions of the 
West M the New Yorker is with his own 
Broadway. Mr. lthodes' father occupied tbo

Down la the section where the Eclair 
players are mnklng their Western produc- 
tions, Eugene Manlove Rhodes is known and 
loved for his true delineation of the Western 
country, and the people of Arizona and New 
Mexico look forward eagerly to the making 
of Sims from one of his stories. The Eclair 
Westhcrn company recently finished a one 
reel subject, entitled "The Bar Cross Liar," 
from a story by Mr. Rhodes, and tills pro- 
duction will be released on Sunday, May 31. 
In pobrt of atmosphere, wonderful acting 
and true Western realism "Ine Bar Cross 
Liar" is said to equal "The Cabnllero's Way." 
They have started work on another of Mr. 
Rhodes' famous Western novels, "The Blund- 
erer's Mark." 

REEL FELLOWS' CLUB PLANNING 
HEADQUARTERS. 

At the meeting of the Reel Fellows' Club 
of Chicago, held at the new Fort Dearborn 
Hotel, April 15, ways and means were dis- 
cussed by Uic presiding body on a suggestion 
offered by the board of governors for the 
establishing and maintaining of permanent 
headquarters in Chicago. The membership 
has been growing so fast that this move is 
very essential at tbls time. What means will 
be used has not been decided upon, but 
amongst other things discussed was a ball 
and also a theatrical benefit, where the big 
iilms of the day would be burlesqued, such 
as "Quo VudlsV" to be put under the title of 
"Throwing the •Bull." 

.Several other good suggestions were made, 
which will be considered by the committee 
appointed, consisting of Ilnrold Vosbnrgh, 
Allen Haase, Wallace Beery, Walter Early 
nnd Tom Quill, This committee will report 
to the club at the next meeting, to be held at 
the same place April 29. 

At the last meeting twenty-four appl'ca- 
tlous were passed on nnd accepted, with 
this rapid growth it Is expected that the 
initiation fee will soon be materially In- 
creased. It is hoped the membership will 
coon reach the hundred mark.

The East India Feature Film Company has 
finished Its four-reel feature production, "In

In India, featuring Rita Sacahctto, In which 
production this distinguished Italian artiste 
scores a distinct triumph, and demonstrates 
her versatility as an emotional actress, clas-

With the interest in military drama that 
has resulted from the impending conflict be-

HERBERT BLAGUE FORMS A HALF 
MILLION DOLLAR COMPANY. 

Under the name at the U 8. Amusement 
Corporation. 'Herbert Dlacbc, president of too 
Exclusive Supply Corporation and Blacho 
Features, Inc., has formed a $500,000 com- 
pany for tee production of large feature 
pbotodramat. 

Besides 'Mr. Bhtche, the directors of the 
company are: Madame Alice Btache, presi- 
dent of the fiolax Company ; Joseph U. 
Shear, Charles D. Llflignw, Joseph Borrles, 
Henri Monessler and Jules B. Brulatour. 

The Blaohe picture producing plant In 
Fort Lee, N. J., lias recently been enlarged 
by the addition of a new factor?, which la 
eald to be one of the most perfectly equipped 
for tbe developing and printing of nits of 
nay in the United States. The old factory 
Is rapidly being remodeled to fornlah addi- 
tional spue for dressing rooms, offices, etc., 
aud tbe new features will be produced In tbe 
Fort Lee plant under the direct supervision 
of President Blache. 

Thfi Maurice Costello Theatre, located at 
S3 Fort Washington Avenue, Manhattan. 
New York City, and named for tbe celebrated 
Vltagrapb -motion picture star, will be opened 
rilxiut May 2. It Is a new building, faced 
with white terra cotta, seating about eight 
hundred, and is planned to be the prettiest 
moving picture theatre In the city. The 
management Is making every endeavor to 
oticn the house ■with "Mir. Barnes of New 
\orlc," which Is now being shown at the 
Vltagrapb Theatre, and Id which Mr. Cos- 
tclio Is adding new laurels to his world-wide 
reputation as a screen actor. 

John E. Ince, leading man and director 
at the Lubln studio, after witnessing bis 
latest effort, "The Greater Treasure," by 
lithel Glenn Hall, claimed that It Is tbe best 
nnotodruma In which be has ever appeared. 
The story teaches a moral lesson — Money Is 
not everything. Tbe several situations were 
handled ably by Director Ince, and bis gifts 
as an actor are no loss than bis art as a pro- 
ducer. Few people know tbat the John ince 
of the photoplay is bhe John Ince who comes 
from a family celebrated in tbe uunala of 
the American stage, and that he is the 
brother of Thomas II. and Ralph Ince, of 
the New York Motion Picture and Vltagrapb, 
Companies. John Ince made his first ap- 
pearance In front of the camera a year and 
a half ago, and soon proved hlmaclf a photo- 
flayer of power and promise. Some of bis 
best known photoplay successes are* "The 
Price of Victory." "The Taking of Rattle- 
snake Bill," "In the Northland," ^'The Crown- 
ing Glory." "Officer Jim," "The House of 
rear," "The .Mansion of iSobs" and "Will 
Wood Tell?" 

The American Klnoto Corporation has 
done extraordinary business of late. Bach 
of ihe features that have been produced 
up to date have been sold out, and 'States 
( liuaor for more than can be supplied. There 
Is every prospect that tbe 'feature film, en- 
titled "Czeniow.ika ; or, a Woman's Treach- 
ery," will have a lino sale. Posters on thl9 
subject are very strong and very uncommon. 
The film Is a line portrayal of Russian life, 
embracing all the tragedy for -which Russian 
dramas aro notorious. 

Tub Sedeg Feature Film Co. continues to 
do a big business with its Funtomns scries 
and other features. Assistant Manager Roy 
L. Frank Is helping out at the Buffalo office, 
owing to the extended -bookings up State. 

Tub American Klneto Corporation report 
that It has sold tbe New York State rights, 
exclusive of Greater New York, to the Sedeg 
Feature Film Co., of the live-reel production, 
'■The Mystery of the Fatal Pearl.'' This fea- 
ture is pronounced to be one of. the best 
mystery pictures Europe has ever sent to 
this country. 

Tub Indianapolis office of tbe Sedeg Fea- 
ture Film Co. is now booking in Indiana and 
Kentucky all of the "Pantomas" pictures 
released by the Gaumont Co. Tbe character 
of "Fantoinas is apparently as well known 
In Indiana as it Is In Now York, whore it 
| layed for four weeks on Broadway. This 
Is evident by the exceptional good bookings 
through tills iState. 

The exhibitors of New York have shown 
their appreciation of Sedeg Features to such 
nu extent that it has become necessary for 
them- to inaugurate a day and night force 
in order to cotter handle the many ship- 
ments. 

MARCUS UOEW FHIST TO SHOW 
FJJATl'RISS. 

■Marcus Loew, who Just bought the Sulll- 
van>Considlnc circuit, It Is said, was the first 
n-.jfn to sbow big feature pictures. Over four 
years ago Mr. I/oew secured the right to a 
big feature picture of Sarah Bernhardt, in 
'•(Joeen lgllaibeth." He advertised It exten- 
sively and- showed tt In all his New York 
theatres. It iirovcd a i uccess from a 'box- 
office standpoint, and he has continued show- 
ing Wg feature pictures In bis New York 
theatres, until now he Is recognised as tho 
world's largest exhibitor of plural reelers.

(Uumont films fiave been making uncom- 
mon 'headway of late. Unuiuouts are now 
certainly fully alive to the requirements of 
the American film market, and seem to b« 
receiving tho reword" of their discretion. 
Their next release, "The Staircase of Death," 
Is a three-reel drama, brimful of Incident, 
and sped ally made to cater to the needs of 
the exchangeman and the exhibitor.

men have organized a company to produce 
four and five-reel features, under the name 
of the Atlantic Coast Film Manufacturing

tures and other episodes of the Eastern Coast 
line of the United States from a historical 
and romantic standpoint, 'will be filmed.

world. Tbe Atlantic Coast Film Manufactur- 
ing Company has executed contracts with the 
Pan American Distributing Company for the

WALTER STANHOPE, LIEUTENANT. 

A -helpful factor "In the production of He- 
llnncc and Majestic Mutual Movies Is Walter 
Stanhope assistant to David W. Griffith, the 
head producer of these 'two brands of motion 
pictures. Though called an assistant. Mr. 
Stanhope In Mr. Griffith's alter ego during 
working hours, and working hours sometimes 
occupy nearly 'all of the twenty-four. 

Mr. Stanhope Is In every way an able lieu- 
tenant. He weeds out the persons who wish 
to sec Mr. Griffith, interviews callers helps 
with scenarios, assists In directing ana some- 
times plays parts himself. 

Mr, Stanhope has conlderable experience 
in motion pictures and on the stage, where 
his lost conspicuous part was with Wilton 
Lackaye, in "The Battle." He has been con- 
nected with the Lubln Film Manufacturing 
company and the Blograph Company. When 
Mr. Griffin quit producing the Btogrnph 
successes such ns "Judith, "The Battle of 
Elderbrush Gulch" and 'The Messengers" 
In order to make Reliance and Majestic Mu- 
tual movies, he secured Mr. Stanhope as bis 
assistant. 

Mr. Stanhope prefers motion pictures to 
the stage as a form of entertainment. He 
thinks the greatest motion picture ever pro- 
duced Is "The Escape," a Griffith Mutual 
movie, which will soon be put before the 
public. Mr. Stanhope's greatest ambition Is 
to become another David W. Griffith, and he 
rays, with a Hue touch of humor, tbat his 
favorite amusement la "watching a player 
from the speaking stage trying to act for 
motion pictures," 

Chikf Sr.nABTiAN, «f the Los Angeles, 
Cal., Police Department, has placed the en- 
tire force at the disposal of the Reliance and 
Majestic Mubuul movie producing forces, W. 
Christy Cnbanne will utilize tbe courtesy In 
a coming feature police drama, which will 
show the force in all Us branches at work. 
Russell E. Smith Is the author of the sce- 
nario. 

"Tub Horse Whanoler," another of the 
famous Western stories of George Fatullo, 
Is now being produced In motion picture 
form by Jack Adolifl. as a Reliance Mutual 
movie. - Mr. Pntulin, who is an authority on 
Western matters, has expressed himself as 
highly pleased with the way his stories have 
been visualized by the producing forces of 
the Mutual Film Corporation. 

Trie latest motion picture actor to Join 
the ranks of the directors Is Donald Crisp, 
of tbe Reliance Mutual Movie forces, form- 
erly with Blograph. He ihas lust completed 
"The Newer Woman," a comedy on the new 
woman question, the scenario of which was 
written by Russell 13. Smith. Dorothy Glsh, 
Hobert Harron and Mr. Crisp, himself, play 
the leading roles. 



ARTHUR ROBINSON AND CHARLES 
DAVENPORT BADLY BURNED 
WfllLE TBSTINO FIREPROOF (t) 
SUITS—THAT WERE NOT. 

Charles Davenport and Arthur RoMnion, 
the inventor of a supposedly fireproof as- 
bestos suit, both of whom are motion picture 
actors, were badly Domed about the face 
and hands April 21 while rehearsing a fire 
scene Id Hackensac. N. J. The plot of tbe 
photoplay, It seems, railed' for the burning 
of a hotel, from which structure the two 
actons were to escape. For this purpose 
Robinson had provided himself and com- 
panion with the asbestos clothes invention, 
which be believed he had perfected. Evi- 
dently the fireproof suits were not so much 
so. Inasmuch as they signally failed to pro- 
tect at the crucial moment, with the result 
that both players were removed to the Hod- 
eon Count/ Hospital. Later advices Inform 
ns tbat both are doing well at the present 



■Ilini.r Bye, the famous Indian motion pic- 
ture actor appearing in Reliance and Ma- 
jestic Mutual Movies, is upholding his repu- 



livt made by Ones, is soon to bo ready for 
bonking by George Klelne. Tbe story has a 



distinctly out-ant he-ordinary plot, and Is 
conspicuous for Its Interesting situations and 
swift action. A prosecuting attorney, sub- 
ject to spelts of temporary meutal aberration, 
and a dear friend of a judge, murders tbe 
judge one ovenlug while strolling down tho 
street. Another man is accused, aud the 



prosecuting attorney, with no memory of 
ws deed, tu rows himself vigorously Into the 
prosecution. How a scientist untangles tho 
ekeln of destiny is not only unusually in- 
teresting, but highly scientific.

terprise*, Jones, Llnlok A Sonaefer Co., and others. These gentlemen represent and control tbe major- 
ity of large and small theatres In the United States and Canada, and were blgb in tbelr praise of 
"Imperial Singing Pictures. 1 ' Jones, LlnlcS & Schacfer, of Chicago, were the first to boot "IMPE- 
RIAL SINGING pictures." Mr. Exhibitor, close your eyes and Imagine yon were sitting In 
a theatre and a beautiful voice started singing; when there appeared on screen these words, "HOME, 
SWEET HOME." Following came a motion picture portrayal of Jobn Howard Payne's immortal aong, 
"HOME. SWEET HOME," in twelve scenes, with human pathos In every scene. Would you sit up 
and applaud, or would yon fall asleep again, as your patrons aro doing dally, owing to tbe same- 
ness of Tourprognun T "GET SOMETHING NEW," tbey are always crying. ''IMPERIAL 
S 1NGIN G PICTURES" are brand-new, and your opportunity to please yonr ever-ohanglng patrons

bame purpose — hair removing, shows con- 
clusively bow perfectly safe it la.

ciety women everywhere as Indispensable aa 
cold cream or face powder. The Decree of 
Fashion— low neck and abort sleevea for the 
afternoon, no sleeves at all for tbe evening 
gown — makes a good depilatory more essen- 
tial than ever. There la nothing like El 
Rado, tbe Liquid Hair Remover, for safeneaa 
and thoroughness. 

Buy a bottle of El Rado and teat it on 
your arm; prove for yourself It will do 
everything claimed for It If you are not 
entirely pleased with the results your money

the shows and everythlns Is so serene and all lb* 
sailors so contented It would be a real pleasure to 
have tbe ibentnotlsm or some other excitement ;

So, regards to all the land-lobbers, and when-

SPARKS' SHOW NOTES 

(AND OTHERS). 

BY rLETOHHIl miTU. 



The Sparks' Show 1* now lu Its second week, 
snd 1* to-day, Sunday. April 19. up In the bills at 
Koxboro. N. 0„ a little way from tho Virginia 
Una Tho show was in South Boston yesterday, 
and played to a crowded tent at tho matinee. 
South Boaton It the champlou no account night 
show town of the world. For tour consecutive 
years the show has hsd win on the opening ut 
Salisbury, and although this season Maiuig'jr 
Charles Spurkn endeavored to dodge It by opening 
away from bis home town, he couldn't avoid It, 
and although Monday night, 13, In Charlotte the 
stars were shining and there was enry evidence 
of a beautiful day on the morrow, the show folks 
awoke In Salisbury to find a tot ankle-deep In mild 
and the aklea leaking water by the bucketfullB. 
It wna Impossible to rive the street pnrade, and 
It waa a great disappointment alike to Mr. Sparks 
and the whole city. The Elks tad arranged to give 
Charles nml Clifton Sparks a surprise by falling 
In line at tbo head of tbo parade, snd afterward, 
attending the opening performance In a body, but 
the rsln put a damper on the parade stunt, but 
did not deter the boya from filling a oectlon of 
seat* at the evening performance. Mrs. J. W. 
Bell and her little orphans from the State Or- 
phanage at Orescent, N. 0„ braved the storm aud 
drove fourteen miles to ho present as the show's 
guests at the opening. Equestrian Director Bert 
Mayo anJ his wlfo, who are very popular In Sal- 
isbury, wen- given an ovation when they rode Into 
the ring the first time. They have spent several 
Winters In Salisbury, and have a boat of frk-iula 
there. Everyone In the home town Is clamoring 
for -the show to play there In the Fall whon it Is 
pretty suro to be good weather. 

The putt week the show wss In High Point, 
Reldavllle, Danville, Va., and So. Boston, snd 
business waa good, particularly In Danville. The 

?ress was entnuslaetlc over the performance, and 
'a* Danville Morning Reglttet, at the head of 
a half column review, pronounced It the "bright- 
est, cleanest show ever seen In Danville, with acta 
that did not Buffer by comparison with the Barnum 
or Rlngllng Shows." The Charlotte, N. 0., dully 
papers also were great boosters, snd every press 
agent who has made Charlotte knows wfoat ne Is 
up against when be tackles tJiut hunch on 7As 
Observer. They are even worse than the boys on 
the Lynchburg, Va., papers, and they are the 
limit. 



RICE & DORE'S WATER CARNIVAL 
LOG. 



Old Neptune gave the water circus a severe Jolt 
the first two day* at Aberdeen, Wash.. April 13 
week, for in a conspiracy with tho elements he 
framed a splash that was very discouraging to 111 
the ablo seamen connected with tho big water ear- 
nival owned, managed aud superintended by Will- 
iam II. Rico and Harry Dore. However, every- 
thing comes to him who wslts, that Is, It does 
■ometlme*. For after Tuesday enough returns 
were gathered to amply repay tho unxloty and tho 
tlrst two dare delay In receipts. 

Tho Aberdeen week will, at that, be over a 
pleasont memory, for the committees headed br 
genial Jim Bowes, and all tho townsfolk* strlvcd 
to make tho engagement pleasant and satisfactory, 
the Chamber of Commerce presenting a scroll of 
praise and encomiums endorsing the cleanliness of 
Rice A Dora mtthodi. likewise their attractions. 
So, the long, special, carnival trnln moved gently 
away Sunday noon, 10, reaching Seattle yesterday 
evening, reedy to begin the week's festivities to- 
day, opening with a grand street display, headed 
by WsrxVs Marino Band aboard a caravel (old 
Spanish boat) mounted on four antouwblles. 

On Tuesday a special professional water circus 
matinee will be given to Margaret Illlngton and 
her company, Geo. Makensle's Seattle Players, all 
the Orubeom, Sullivan A Oonaldlne, Pantagca' 
vaudeville folks, is well a* the cabaret singer* 
and moving picture talent, for this Seattle town 
Is a lire one, and the theatres are In full blast, 
nice A Here, ever anxious to extend sll courtesies 
to allow people, have endeared themselves to all 
prnr«>loiuils everywhere, adding thousands to their 
list of boosters. 

The camlval ground!, at Seattle are as near 
the centre of the city sa auch a vast apace neces- 
sary would permit, available by all car line*, 
necessitating the closing of two streets, attended 
to by Harry Trimble and Geo. Rich, the local 
contnlttee assisting. All the water carnival 
jailors and seafaring concessioners are predicting 
a big week, If it don't rain. The big captured 
shark has born upholstered with press notices, 
and goes on exhibition here. The Plantation man- 
ager discharged an end man for borrowing a chew 
of tobacco from tb* audience. The fat girl ha* 
had a Spring suit made out of the show's eld* 
wall. 

Jack Itellly Is at Mlssonta. Geo. Rich, at Wal- 
lace, Ida. ; Harry Trimble will visit Tom Dumphy.

And b'lleve me bo, dla la No. 1 outfit I that 
Is what a gentleman of the canvas department re- 
marked. If you don't bellere him Just come and 
get a flash at that mammoth stretch of canvas, 
with the eight voles, the audience need telcscoiies 
Instead of opera ■lasses now, In the dressing 
tent there Is an extra pole, even then there la 
no waste of room. 

The cook tent la also longer and wider, and 
has quite a few extra tables In It. They are sure 
handing out some swell mesls this season. Mr. 
Henry, I take my hat off to yon. 

We bare, besides toe aide show, a plantation 
show, snd the offsprings of "Uncle Thomas" are 
drawing tn the shekels right merrily. 
. The litest Innovation In the big top Is tbe 
"Wild West Concert." Which !• under the direc- 
tion of 81 Oompton, It U more than making good. 
Lain Parr Is one of the stare In It. Baldle 
Clearing*, of Texas, and Bud Worth, of Bamboo, 
ate also cutting her keen with tbelr cowboy dance 
In the concert. 

The "tree chic" bats of the mounted boglera 
and heralds created quite a mild sensation alone 
the line of parade. They are of orange hoe, with 
an ostrich plome In front Tbe effect la quite 
girlish. Folks were conjecturing as to whether we 
were ladles or gentlemen, and one fresh creature 
had tbe nerve to tell me to take the powder off 
my nose I Tbe horrid wretch. 

Butch Sleyrtat, the world famous Roman stand- 
ing clown, of who wants neks fame, li doing 
quite i business. Racks are at a premium. Fire 
guy* besides myself are dressing on my rack. 
Botch sometimes makes as much as three cents 
on s rack. 

Frankle Hammer Is boning along as merrll/ as 
ever, nil table and high strike gag are going 
strong. But why did Rossi hand Frank a post- 
omoe. order blank on Thursday ? 

Phil King and James Bosal have produced a 
pew tango. It la entitled the "Bachmalltn Fes- 
tire Terpsichore." The features In It are the 
empty flasks and the sliding shoe. From a dress- 
ing-room point of Tlew It Is a riot 

Kd. Walton and Slater attempted to bribe Joe 
the tnmk placer, to pat Bnffey's trunk (which 
was between them) away down the alile, but 
Boss Oeglind came In and ordered tbe trunk back 
to Its place, so Slater and Ed. lost tbelr place 
and four bits, and Rochester Is himself sgaln. 

Stilly Is organising a troupe of boy scoots to 
send down to Mexico. Bam Kelson Is to be cap- 
tain, Herman Josephs Is to run the commissary 
department and Flat-iron la to collect the dough. 

Quanrxs I Who found the nails In Big Stretch's 
shear Who wn the handsome Teuton that did a 
kid over the guy rope? Who Is the showman 
that was abort-changed for a dollar? Who Is the 
conceited gny that was going to be presented with

TOUJOURS 
GAI! 

"Always gay!" 
Such is the motto of 
Paris, from the dance 
mill on the hill (the 
Moulin de la Galette 
on Montmartre) to 
.aristocracy in the Bois; and part 
and parcel of that gaiety, light, fugacious, 
aromatic, is the Parisians cigarette— the ciga- 
rette rolled by his deft fingers in the paper Riz La Croix. 
Mais oui! Who could not be gay with his sweetheart on

LOEW FORMING WORLD qRCUIT. gJK^JSUSk. World ol Players. 25 YEARS AGO. 

117 THEATRES NOW UNDER HIS CONTROL. 



Marcus Loew, one of America's supreme 
vaudeville, heads, la planning a circuit of 
theatres which will encircle the globe, a 
roost Important part of which v/lll be a cir- 
cuit In England. Mr. Loew, with the recent 
buying of the Sulllvnn-Consldlne circuit of 
forty-seven houses In the West, now has a 
circuit of one hundred and seventeen ' thea- 
tres stretching from Coast to Coast on the 
American continent under his control. 

For the past three years Mr. Loow has had 
n world circuit in mind, and laid the founda- 
tion for it by Ms purchase of the Sullivan- 
fonsldlne circuit. He will shortly visit Lon- 
don to look over the English vaudeville 
situation, and from there go to South Africa, 
Australia, New Zealand and the Hawaiian 
Islands completing a tour of the globe, and 
lie may soon be able to offer performers 
twenty-eight weeks in Australia, ten or 
twelve weeks In South Africa, about four 
weeks in New Zealand and a short stay In 
llic Hawaiian Islands, with n tour of Eng- 
land added. 

Mr. Loew realizes that it would be impos- 
sible to send to these countries the same 
vaudeville shows which tour intact over his 
big American circuit, and plans to put sev- 



eral English acta and more ucrobatlc and 
'sight acts," so-called, In his companies 
when he sends them around the world. 

At the present time Mr. Loew is organizing 
in New York what Is known as "road shows." 
consisting of six vaudeville nets and a big 
feature photoplay, which starts on a forty 
weeks' tour over his big American clrcrlt. 
He will shortly build a chain of theatres 
through Northwest Canada, connecting his 
Vancouver house in the West with his Win- 
nipeg and Toronto houses In the East. His 
road shows would then start from New York 
iiy the Southern route to the West, return hv 
way of Northwest Canada, and leave Mon- 
treal for England, going from there to South 
Africa, Australia. New Zealand and the Ha- 
waiian Islands. 

Mr. Loew is a man of remarkable person- 
ality, whose meteoric upward flight during 
the past five years has been truly sensa- 
tional. Starting seven years ago with a 
small pinny arcade, he is now the master of 
one hundred and seventeen theatres, and his 
property holdings arc valued at $37,000,000. 
He has some of the wealthiest and brainiest 
theatrical men in America associated -with 
him In his gigantic enterprises.

opens now. 




The door marked "Private" 

Tbe boy takes In your 11a 
But comes right c-ut and harks at you; 

"Mr. Snlngold's at the game." 
You stumble from this cilice. 

And down the sticct a ways; 
To nu agent you remember 

Once gavo you seven days. 
"Is Mr. Goudron In?" you ssk. 

A stately looking queen, 
"Oh, no, he's just gone oat," she says, 

"To ride In his machine." 
Once more you wend your weary way 

To a building quite remote; 
You don't mind traveling some. 

But this kind gets your goat. 
"I'd like to see Mr. Powell, please," 

But again tbe word la "nix." 
"He's Just this minute gone out South 

In Ills nifty, new Big Six." 
You totter down the hall and see 

A name upon a door. 
And underneath It reads, "Walk In," 

Yen forthwith walk some more. 
You know he's In, the man you want, 

That's why he draws his pay. 
"Oh. Charlie Crowl?" tbe boy replies, 

"Say, the Sox are here to-day." 
Again you hike, your feet are sore, 

Your collar's wilted flat; 
There Is an agent left, think you, 

With a "Welcome" on bis mat. 
You climb a flight of stairs or two, 

Aral struggle through a bunch; 
"No, Walter Keefe Is at tbe Club— 

The 'Old Friends' Club, for lunch." 
Oh. somewhere la this gladsome land 

The actors draw ilielr pay. 
But howln — well they get their jobs

( I LOVE YOU ) 




April 25. 

America has captured theatre and music 
bill this week. The theatre fell to Edward 
Knoblauch, the Royalty, to wit. In respect of 
his quaintly Imagined and charming piny, 
"The Lady's Dress." Elsie Janls and Gus 
Sotiike headed an assault on the Palace, where 
they triumphantly floated the banner of 
"The Passing Show." Alias Janls. In par- 
ticular, must be allowed a remarkable suc- 
cess In a iall where many a triumph of 
American art has been acclaimed. 

Alfred Butt let 'he .preliminary talk out, 
es It seemed, somewhat Indiscreetly, about 
the revue he has contemplated so long. It 
Is the fact that "The Passing Show" annexed 
more square Inches of cold type during the 
week or two preceding Its production than 
most shows manage to wrest from the news- 
papers. The result was an eager and pos- 
sibly an extra exigent public thronging tie 
Palace to assist nt the unfolding of the much 
lauded novelty — concocted, as to the music, 
by the tuneful and Ingenious Hermann 
Flock ; as to the book, by the graceful and 
humorous Arthur Wlmpens, wltn him P. L. 
Flers, the Parisian expert, and as to the 
mine en scene, by Gus Sohlke. Mr. Butt 
certainly took a chance In the preliminary 
puffing of "The Passing Show," for when you 
promise or even allow the expectation of so 
much, you run the risk of a disappointed 
and resentful audience. Doubtless Mr. Butt 
knew that be would be able to fulfill and to 
exceed any promise, and so he came easily 
through. "The Passing Show" will be a 
long time passing. What a diverting notion 
to get a laugh out of tbe omissions of con- 
ventional humor, as, ifor instance, when 
George Bernard Shaw strides tbrougb the 
stalls, complaining that an hour has passed 
with no reference to him. And again when 
Mr. De Courvtlle, from the Hippodrome, re- 
proaches tbe production with the lack of a 
staircase. Elsie Janls made a hit at once, 
as effectual as It was prompt. Says one of 
her critics : "A creature of sheer delight ; 
a born dancer and mimic, an artist whose 
talent responds to every phase of dramatic 
art. an actress who apparently con touch 
the chords of tragedy as easily as of comedy, 
yet who carries the gravest situation with 
a laugh and a roguish twinkle of the eyes 
that leave you an unresisting slave to ner 
charms." Miss Janls figures as Kitty O'Flara 
who 1b taken 'round tbe town by an obliging 
showman in o'.ie person of Arthur Playfnlr. 
Miss Janls' impersonations of well known 
artists crowned her success. There are In 
"Tbe Passing Show" some wonderful scenes 
— a "Marriage Market," where pretty women 
are sold by auction, and a carnival, imported 
from Paris, with a picturesque dance of 
Punch and Judy, Scaramouche, and tbe rest. 
A Dnnse Persane. by Mile. Reglne Flory, 
was much admired. 

Edward Knoblauch dovelops a novel idea 
with much ingenuity In "My Lady's Dress," 
at the Royalty. Monsieur and madamo have 
n little misunderstanding about the price of 
a dress, which sets madamo dreaming. She 
has visions of a series of little plays — tho 
culture of silk worms, with an incidental 
tragedy of Jealousy ; a Lyons weaving shed, 
a weary artisan dying at his loom a Dutch 

f;arden, with a comedy of courtship about 
ace, a squalid room In White Chapel, where 
artificial flowers are made ; a trappers' stock- 
ade in Siberia — the hunt for furs; tbe mil- 
linery In Bond Street. And there is a dra- 
matic ending to tbe dream. Dennis Eadle 
and Gladys Cooper play many parts well in 
this strange piece, which was well received. 

Jem Gilbert is the composer of the hour, and. 
In tbe Autumn, it Is not unlikely be will figure 
on three West End programs. His "Mile. Tra-Ia- 
1s" is, in the meanwhile, quite a hit at the Lyric 
Theatre. His strongest point Is its music — the 
hook la so like a dozen others that there is little 
to be said for it. James Blakeley, an unctuous 
comedian, lives most useful help. He Dgurea as 
a chocolate manufacturer whose business is 
languish for capital. In earlier life he settled 
the possible proceeds of a lottery ticket on a 
stray son whose whereabouts becomes of extreme 
Importance, and for whom be begins a search 
through gay Paris, finding the occupation very 
pleasant. In the event the youth is found. The 
vivacious Mile. Tra-la-U. who at one time 
threatened to complicate his fortunes, solves that 
difficulty by marrying him. Yvette Arliand plays 
Mite. Tra-la-la. Tbe production is costly. 

Forbes Robertson's declaration that be will not 
revise bis decision to retire from the stage while 
vet he can "kick a leg." has produced a num- 
ber of Interesting opinions — for Instance, from 
Sir Charles Wyndhoan, who Is seventy-seven, ills 
doctors nature him he may live to see a hundred, 
and till then, he declares, he will act. Alfred 
Bishop, who Is not far short of seventy, says an 
actor should act » long as he feel fit to act. and 
can remember bis lines. He looks on falling 
sight as a blessing, rather! for then, you do 
not see the bored faces of the critics. Rutland 
Harrington thinks ninety might be s good age to 
retire. Many an actor, uys Fsrrlngton, does 
not come into his own till he's fifty-five. 

Slegmnnl Labis has been made much of in 
cinematograph circles during his vlalt to London. 
He has fast bought tbe rights of a large number 
of Drnry Lane purs. He speaks with the utmost 
confidence of the future of the picture theatre. 
lie laid out 1700,000 last yesr, and supposes be 
will spend much more this year. "But,'' he said, 



"I am buying more la Europe than anywhere 
else. One can have too much American even in 
America, and there is quite a bunch of picture 
theatres In the United States which need con- 
tinuous novelty. Besides, Just as It Is with my- 
self, most Americans have European 'nelmatba.' " 

Charles Brookheld, tho censor of plays, died 
penniless; but friends have quickly raised a fund 
which will keep the wolf from the door of his 
widow— an actresa In the old days when "Brookle'' 
was an actor. 

It Is said that the booking for "Pygmalion" Is 
quite satisfactory. George Bernard Shaw has 
gone to the country, to recuperate. Edmund 
Payne, the Gaiety comedian, Is so seriously 111 
that a long time must elapse ere be eon act again. 

Shields and Rogers are popular contributors to 
I he Empire protrraimue Just now. with their uct, 
"The Cowboy and the Iudlnn." 

Sir George Alexander promises the revival of 
Oscar Wilde's play "An Ideal Husband," at the 
St. James' Theatre. Does Oils mean that "The 
Two Virtues" is not a real bit. 

Oscar Ascbe, whose sprained ankle laid him up 
much longer than bo expected, is again acting In 
"Kismet." at the Globe. 

Violet Melnotte, a once important entrepreneur 
of cxroie opera, has returned to the stage. She 
is on the road with "Tbe Barrister." farcical 
comedy. 

Sir Frederick Bridge, tbe veteran musician, who 
has been organist of Westminster Abbey for more 
than forty years, was married there to a country 
mold the other day. 

Judge Parry, presiding over Lombertl County 
(Small Debts) Oourt, Is a great man for the the- 
atre, for which be has written, notahlv "What 
tbe Butler Saw." He Is to preside Immediately 
at the annual dinner of the Royal General The- 
atrical Fund. 

Weedon Grosamltb has got hold of yet another 
force, which he describes as "grim," and which 
he will try on the road shortly, In tbe hope that 
it Is good enough for a London venture. It Is 
called "Walt and See." 

McKee Itmikln was very well known In this 
country. Many years ago he played "The Dsn- 
ttes" In London and on the road. It is not so 
many years since he managed an unfortunate sea- 
son at the Adelphl, for Nance O'Neill. 

Oswald stall's Idea at producing plays In week- 
ly Instalments of sn set, at the Coliseum, does 
not seem to hare made a great impression. He 
began on Monday with "Find the Woman,*' your 
"Third Degree," employing Violet Vanbrugh. 
Arthur liourchlcr does not appear In the first set. 
lie picks up tbe Job next Monday. 

A comparatively new music hall. Kingston Km- 

filrf, has been destroyed by fire; loss glio.UOO at 
east, to the proprietor, Clarence Souuea. John 
Lawson has lost scenery and properties which he 
values at nearly 11,000.

manager, has broken down In health. George K. 
Reynolds succeeds him at tbe Hippodrome, Msn- 
cbester.

man (William Bankrerl, are matched to box at 
the National Sporting Club. 

For the prolongation of Genet's engagement st 
the London Oollsoum, the ballet from "Robert Urn 
Devil" Is to be revived. 

Toby Claude has successfully resisted a claim of 
Tae i'ra newspaper for advertisements of "The 
Little Cabaret." She pleaded that her agent In- 
curred the debt, without consulting her as to tbe 
need of It. Tho Judge agreed that the actresa was 
not liable. 

Sir Charles Wyndham and Mary Moore are 
shortly producing "The Bine Mouse" In London, 
at a theatre not yet to be named. Madge Leasing 
will play the principal part. She has been on the 
Continent five years, playing in French in Paris, 
In German In Berlin, and even getting la a little 
liungarlan. 

"A Mid-Summer Night's Dream" has now been 
played seventy-five times in the Barber style at 
the Savoy. 

Frank Law ton, the whistling comedian, Bllnky 
BUI, of "The Belie of New York." Is dead. He

The revival of this play has now run out to 
four hundred and fifty performances. 

Nancy Price has secured the Comedy Theatre 
for her four afternoon performances of "The Holy 
City" early In May. 

Msrle Tempest is again playing "Tbe Marriage 
of Kitty." at the Ployhouse. 

Lew Beam and Bonlta are already leaving the 
Gaiety, alleging a "previous engagement," but 
there arc probably other reasons. 

Charles Frohmnu said In conversation the other 
day that America Is suffering terribly from an 
over supply of places of amusement. He means 
to do '•The Yellow Ticket" and "Kitty McKay" 
In London in the Autumn, but he will have to re- 
sort to some other manager for a theatre, bis 
own, the Duke of York's, being fully employed 
with "The Lond of Promise " An Inspection of 
"Diplomacy" and "The Land of Promise" has 
Impressed Mr. Frobman with the belief that there 
must be no adverse criticism of London acting 
Just now, for none could be better I 

Melba began the opera season on Monday with 
a performance of "La Bobeme," In the presence 
of the King and Queen. 

Britannia Pier, Yarmouth, a well-known amuse- 
ment retort, has been destroyed by fire. "Suf- 
frsgettes" are suspected, but so far, without de- 
finite proof. 

Buoy De Fontenoy, or Bordererry, Is appearing 
at Brixton next week. She claims to bo the 
champion girl shot of tbe world. 

Cecelia Loftus Is to appear at the Loudon 
Coliseum iu June.

Is dead. He supplied Charles Godfrey with the 
historic "On Guard." 



CLOSING OF FIELD'S MINSTRELS. 

Birch logon, of the Al. 0. Field Minstrels, 
sends the following: 

"It the season had extended to Oct. 5, twenty- 
eight full years would be credited to the life of 
the AI. G. Field Greater Minstrels. I believe It 
Is a part of tho creed of that optimistic class 
known as 'tbe profession' to make claim to w» 
lierlty. even though it is only lu their hopes for 
tbe future. It has been recorded, out! stands to 
the credit of the 'oldest, biggest and best' that 
the season of 1013-1914, beginning Aug. 1, 101J, 
and ending May 2, 1014, was tho best in point of 
gross receipts in the history of the old reliable 
money -getter. The profits were a Utile shy of 
some other years, bat the dear people gave It to 
us, and that wo endeavored to give them a little 
more In return may have cut the profits slightly 
for Uils season, but the 'governor' says It Is. lay- 
ing up profits for next season. 

"Since the sun has called every living being out 
doors, and the grasses hsve grown green. Mr. 
Field has been a difficult proposition to control. 
Dp at five a. u., be delivered lectures to all 
who were about as to farm life, anil bow he was 
fooling his time away with a minstrel show when 
the lure of the land called him to Maple Villa. 
The coming of a calf or twin iambs were lauded 
as happenings more Important than the lavaalou 
of Mexico by tho Uulted States. Carl, the col- 
ored porter, declared that If the 'Ginger' mare 
foaled before the season closed tbe 'old man' 
would blow the troupe sure. 

" Tho Minstrel Show of the Future' Is the 
title of next year's production. It Is done mid 
ready for the road, and thero will be oomo class 
to It. A Colonial opening, with npproptlatc ward- 
robe, scenery and music. There will bo more 
diversity In this production than In any first part 
Mr. Field ever produced. This scenic surprise 
will be followed by a Wg Indian Number, the 
music of which Is by Dave Reed. This will be 
snotber startler. There will bo n little of every- 
thing In this number. It la a burlesque on the 
moving picture actors.

most all "popular" song publishers are now 
located Within a stones throw of one an- 
other, and from Forty-fourth Street, wltb

Mills, East and West of Broadway, almost 
the entire publishing fraternity can be found, 
J. W. Stern & Co, and M. W. Wltmark still 
remain In their buildings, where they have 
been located for Boveral years, but the trend 
Is up and it is only a question of a little 
lime before every "popular" publisher In New

gram that appeared at the Folles Jlnrlgny,

THAT NEW BERLIN HIT. 

Seldom has a song registered a lilt la such 
a snort time as has Irving Berlin's latest 
war song, called "They're On Their Way to 
HexIco.' r The song has a typical Berlin 
melody, with a lyric that tells a beautiful 
story. Irving Introduced It last week In sov- 
eril of the principal houses In New York, 
and it was a knockout at each performance. 
MAYOR OF BOSTON PUTS O. K. ON 
STORY'S NEW SONG. • 

That O. B. Story, of Boston, Is making 
tome noise in the song world Is putting it 
mildly. "The Poor Little Rich Girl," the 
ballad that he Is following '-'The Rose of the 
Mountain Trail", with, Is pronounced by all 
to be an absolute hit that nothing can stop. 
The Mayor, James -M; Curley, called the 
ether day, we understand, and says that It 
is the best song he has beard lu a good many 
Tears. We wonder If history will repeat 
Itself.

PALACE, 

{ELMER F. 110GEUS, MOil.) 

A wonderful program. In fact, one of the 
best of the season. Is being shown here this 
week. 

Krltsl Bcheff, assisted by Louis Ascbcnfel- 
der at the piano, presented the same reper- 
toire of songs as when ahe last appeared 
here several months ago. It Is needless to 
say that she was one of the hits of the bill. 

Joseph Santley, assisted by Ruth Randall 
and Gladys Sell, presented an entirely new 
act. offering songs and up-to-date dances. 
I See New Acts.) 

The comedy hit of tbe entertainment was 
captured by Raymond and Caverly, In their 
well know act. Some new parodies were In- 
troduced, one in particular on "Get Out and 
Get Under'' that carried several encores. 

Sascha Piatov and Kitty Closer, civics 
their version of the tango asi ..uinwlnd 
dances, bad tbe closing position and held 
tbem seated until the conclusion of their 
excellent performance. 

Keller Mack and Frank Orth, presenting 
"The Wrong Hero," bad rather a hard time 
of it at the matinee. The audience couldn't 
seem to warn up to them. Several new 
songs were Introduced and each went over 
fairly well. 

Btun Stanley and company, In bis success- 
ful specialty, cleaned up. The audience were 
kept guessing for some time by Stan's talk 
from un orchestra chair, but anally got wise 
and -then gave him an ocean of applause. 
This act 4s never tiresome, Stanley Always 
keeping It up-to-date with new material. 

Dcrkln's European Novelty, showing a 
troupe of remarkably clever dogs and 
monkeys, had things their own way. Tho 
dogs do almost everything but talk. Their 
whole performance was a huge success. 

De -Haven, Nice and Do Haven, in songs 
and dances, had little to complain at the 
reception accorded them. All three are ex- 
cellent dancers, showing a donee they call 
"The Tango Pootcd Monkey Wrench" dance 
that earned them plenty of applause. 

The Hearst-Sellg Weekly showeJ the Im- 
portant events of the pust week and proved 
Very entertaining. 

The first Mew York presentation of the 
Harry Lander singing-talking pictures wero 
shown and caused considerable comment.

HAMMERSTEIN'S. 

(LYLE ANDREWS, MOB.) 

flamtnersteln's three-ring circus bill may 
be somewhat of a novelty in the way of pre- 
senting vaudeville of to-day, but after once 
witnessing three acts do their turn upon tbe 
stage at the same time the wise manager who 
is offering a two-a-dny vaudeville show will 
not go out of his way to copy this freakish 
Idea, presented on the corner for the first 
time Monday. May 4. Twenty-four acts made 
up the bill, and only a fair bouse was In at- 
tendance at the opening performance Monday. 

Harry Jacobs, with a set of song slides, 
tang "Hesitate Me Around" to good results. 

The Three Halstons, in songs and dances, 
got over nicely. 

Galindo, Marrie Prince and Jonathan, elay 
modeler, juggler and cartoonist, respectively, 
made up the third ring circus novelty. The 
Brothers Arco, hilled as superior athletes, 
certainly lived up to their billing, and intro- 
duced a number of wonderful hand to hand 
work, 

Claude Golden mystified with cards, and 
kept the audience in good humor with bis 

f:ood line of comedy. Max and Mabel Ford, 
n Bongs and dances, made a decided Impres- 
sion 

"The Bed Slave of Niagara," a melodra- 
matic sketch. Is far from being op to tho 
mark os a dramatic production, but from a 
scenic point of view a wonderful realistic 
betting shows the falls at Niagara in aU 
their b pi en dor. 

Blossom Seeley cleaned up with a new rep- 
ertoire of songs, accompanied at the piano 
by Hay Walker. 

Roberta MengesJTearle, in a series of 
dances, held over from last week. Just got 
bye. McKay and Ardilne are popular favor- 
ites on the comer, and the act went big, 
which It deserved to do. 

O'Brien, Havel and company, in Will 
Cressy's "Monday Morning," kept the audi- 
ence laughing throughout, and scored. 

Belle Story sang herself Into the hearts 
of tbe audience with her wonderful voice. 

Ada Overton Walker should be classed as 
the greatest of the latter day dance crazes. 
There is not a professional dancer appearing 
in vaudeville to-day that can equal the late 
Geo. Walker's wife. Her partner is some- 
what out of place, bnt the little ebony lady 
overbalanced any shortcoming on bis part, 
and her dances were tremendous hits. 

Paul Morton and Naomi Glass, presenting 
"My Lady of tbe Bungalow," went over. 

Princess Zallah danced the famous "Cooch" 
and let out at top speed, which scored. 

Fred V. Bowers made his usual hit with 
his pickaninnies in a song review. 

Charlotte Da vies didn't display much inno- 
cence, but plenty of figure with very little 
drapery ana less talent ns an artist's model. 

Big Tim Sullivan's Daughter (Alda V. 
SnlUron) bad a bard road to travel to put 
over her songs, but managed to get by. 

Zlmmer, Ethel Vane and Twlsto closed tbe 
bill with another three-ring affair. Olio. 

LOEWS SEVENTH AVENUE, 

(JAKE LtJBIN, MOI1.) 

On Tuesday night. April 28, found a good 
show being offered for the first half of last 
week. 

Taylor and Brown, a man and woman in 
a talking and singing skit, did real well. 
They carry two drops, opening with sidewalk 
conversation. Tbe man has toe best singing 
numbers. One would hardly know whether 
the lady was doing a silly kid or a nut come- 
dienne. They offer a song, "In a Ten Cent 
Movie Show, during which they use a pic- 
ture sheet and demonstrate how "lovers" act 
at picture shows is a little overdone. 

Lawrence and Edwards, two men, In "The 
Pension Office," work in two and carry a 
special drop. The talk Is very good, and 
with tbe present "war" on every lip Is a 
winner for them. They could omit the play- 
ing of "Tbe Star Spangled Banner" at tbe 
eud of their act. 

Mantilla and Lloyd, mar zzi. woman, in 
ballroom dacSrr, ou'er tbe usual modern 
o>e'(. tut. but the woman's costume Is a 
bit too risque— almost vulgar. A dancing act 
tbey are supposed to be, then why feature 
the model thine? 

The Nine Krasy Kids, with a new set of 
scenery, a new teacher and a few new pupils, 
scored their usual hit. it is a "kid" act with 
a lot of good, clean comedy, and in Bert Gor- 
don, Minnie Wood (who Is presenting this 
kid torn) certainly picked a winner. Bert 
is funny and, although a young comedian, 
who is given a lot of liberty, he does not' 
abuse it. Harry Gordon, as tbe "teacher," 
does good work, but in the tough boy the act 
could make a vast improvement. He cannot 
do the rough lad. Stella Gordon and Elsie 
Fay carry the singing honors for the girls, 
and special mention Is due to little MIsb Fay 
for her sweet voice and personality. The 
audience here couldn't get enough of her 
singing "You Broke My Heart to Pass the 
'lime Away." Tbe rest of the company in- 
cludes : Irene Kearney, Flo Edwards, Harry 
Packard, Eddie Brodle and Bert Lorbelm. 

Delmore and Light, two men (and a 
piano). The men open In neat business 
suits, one at the piano and the other singing 
"I Had to Love Her. That's All," In a pretty 
good way. Tbe piano solo csrrles the act. 
The singe; changes to full dress and sings 
and talks "I'm Going Home," a "good fel- 
low" number. It wonld be an Improvement 
if both changed to full dress. "Smother Me 
with Kisses and Kill Me with Love" was one 
of their beet numbers. 

Harry Bouton and company. In "fits of 
magic," do some very good tricks. Mr. Bou- 
ton has a good personality and he has a 
good comedian to work In the laughs. The 
feature stunt, "Tbe Bachelor's Dream," is a 
clever one, and their entire act was well re- 
ceived. Pete. 

The house was rapidly filling on the last 
day of the wet month, and tho Incoming 
change of bill for tbe last half of tbe week 
shaped up as a pretty good small time show, 
though minus anything tbat might start you 
towards Kings Park, L. I. 

Mund and Sol (blew Acts), a dainty and 
sweet "alster" act opened fire after tbe 
MlsBee Mary Rush, Sadie Peorlman, Veronica 
Rellley and Mrs. Scbwlnd. the Venuaes of the 
balcony staff said "Here they are again" 
(so's we could hear It), and we blushlngly 
took a few scats and nulled the ten cents' 
worth of pistachio nuts that we bought to 
beat up Joe Vogcl with. Joe must have been 
tipped off for he was not in sight "all night 
long." At any rate, the Mund and Sol 
"girls" pleased Immensely until they doffed 
the wigs, and tbe added surprise made them 
tho biggest thing of the night, outside of 
Zelnya and one of tho "Melton"-Shelvey boys. 
Morton and Austin were on rather early 
In No. 2 spot for a feature act. Even Jim 
Morton found time to pull some ad Kb. staff 
and tell a few tardy patrons that they Bhould 
have eaten supper early In order to catch 
them. However, Morton docs eighty-five and 
n halt per cent, of the act, with Austin 
looking more like a feed with tbe exception 
of a few moments. Just a hodge-podge, 
of everything, from Jim's getting kicked In 
the chin three or four times to a spell of 
burlesue drama. 

Ted Morse's "Hesitate Me Around, BUI" 
was the following Illustrated song number, 
and a girl would have got more results out 
of It than the young chap did here. The 
elides are all pretty. 

Zela.va. the clever, "plump" pianist, had 
big going In the next rpot. but some "fair" 
stage hand left a feather duster lying under 
tbe baby grand and made ns imagine Zelaya 
had some new stunt In tho act The turn 
looks the earne. tat Zciaja has cut his play- 



ing of a selection with one band and smoking 
a cigarette with tbe other, since we caughc 
him at the Greeley Square. His "puplar" 
ragtime Qnlsh makes a final good number. 

They were standing-two deep at tbe rear 
of the balcony when '"The Book Agent" came. 
This act la njerely a farce, in which a stu- 
dious, queer, old business man is visited by 
tbe book-canvassing new husband of. his 
daughter, and the persistency of tbe young 
cbap to sell his wares wins the old man over 
before tbe daughter amateurishly springs It 
that said agent is her honest-to-goodness 
nusband. The two men get more from tbe 
sketch than a whole bunch of others do with 
better material. Tbe girl appeared new In 
her part. 

Tbe Three "Melton" Boys, In the closing 
position, proved to be the Sbelveys. Tbelr 
present trio poslngs, all in white fleshings, 
appear to be new ones by the way they 
worked here. Tbe smaller boy is a re- 
markable contortionist and carried tbe offer- 
ing alone. 

James Haley and Jessie Noble, with Haley 
working without tbe comic prop nose gear, 
did well, but they romp by on Haley's 
"su-r-r-e" and the stunning personal appear- 
ance of Miss Noble. There « an abundance 
of room for live material, for without tbe 
false sniff piece the act lacks even one big 
laugh. 

"The Brute," a four-part Famous Players 
production, serves good screen entertainment, 
out we've seen better Famous Players fea- 
tures in re gards to story. Tod, 

PROCTOR'S 125th STREET. 

(nil. A. MATTHEWS, MOB.) 

Pick, pick, pick, pick three times and the 
"four-sbows-a-day" policy went out for tbe 
count here Just before midnight last Sunday, 
and on Monday morning Little Miss Tbree- 
a-day pranced into this Douse to the delight 
of the acts on the change of bill which ushers 
In the first week of Mav. 

It la the greatest thing F. F. Proctor has 
ever accomplished for performer and public 
alike, for It not only means tbat there will 
be a better class of talent drawing tbe price 
of feed boss from the Proctor box receipts, ■ 
but It will undoubtedly save tbe acts wbo are 
working this time from playing themselves 
to death before they finish with It. It 
moans cleaner and better entertainment for 
the last shows of each day, and this very 
human change shall without a doubt show 
better results at tbe box offices of the Proc- 
tor theatres. 

GalUndo, the clay modeler, started the 
show for tbe last half of last week (April 
80-May 3), with bis pressing out of very 
easily distinguished well known characters 
of the past and present 

"The Gray of the Dawn" was the feature 
act. and with Its large cast and good leads 
did comparatively as well here as we have 
seen this same melodramatic playlet do in 
the higher class houses 

Tbe Booth Trio of three men, assisted by 
a piano, sang themselves into favor. 

Louise Meyers and a company including a 
man and a woman offered one of those pre- 
vailing dramatic playlets wherein a woman 
card sharp blinds a youth out of five hundred 
bucks of bis employer's, and then is In turn 
tricked into returning same to the boy's 
mama by an old male "friend" whom she 
trimmed in by-gone days. Fairly well pre- 
sented. 

George Dixon, In comedy musical act In 
Dutch kid make-up, has a turn that, with 
the substitution of Instruments for others 
he is now using, would improve his act won- 
derfully. As It stands a foreign appearance 
relgna over It all, especially the playing of 
tbe instruments on a table set with "prop" 
turkey, etc., and tbe skeleton xylophone. He

UNION SQUARE. 

(BBS SUBX, MOB.) 

The bill opened Monday with Marvelous 
Mells, a man and woman, doing a very good 
ring act The man Is a well built and 
muscular young fellow, and displays some 
strength while working on (he rings. His 
partner Is clever. 

Radcllff and Nelson do a neat sister act. 
They sing and dance, and wear pretty 
clothes. 

J. K. Murray and Clara Lane offer a 
sketch, something about an ungovernable 
temper the woman has. The act Itself Is 
weak. Fortunately both Mr. Murray and 
Miss Lane have good voices, which was their 
strong point They offered ' several selec- 
tions, which were well received. They should 
not depend on their lines to make the act 

Will Conler offered a dandy German mono- 
logue. Wearing a dress suit, fancy vest, red 
tie and a good German comedy make-up, he 
looked the part Conley bad a good line of 
talk, up to the minute, and put over several 
good songs. With a few Utile changes Con- 
ley Is headed for the two-a-day. 

>v My Mother-in-law," is a sketch offered by 
two women and two men. The idea Is good, 
but a little overdone. The men need more 
rehearsals, as they were not sure of them- 
selves Monday. 

Benne Dixon and Girls, in a series of so- 
ciety dances, were next. They first offered a 
waltz, which tbey did nicely. Maxlxe fol- 
lowed and was prettily given. The man was 
away front the usual dancers of this style, 
wearing a white stlk shirt and flannel 
trousers Instead of a drees suit The girls 
had a fine wardrobe. The last number, "In 
the Shadows," was pleasing and gracefully 
danced, but tbe man was a Uttle too un- 
dressed. The act Is good. 

Jordan and Harvey went well. They put 
tbelr points over nicely. 

Cole and Rogers, a man and woman, were 
next, in a singing and talking act 

Maxlnoff Troupe of Russians closed the 
show. Maxlnoff rather spoiled his act by In- 
sisting on calling out to the leader of the 
orchestra how to play his music, bad policy.

Jerome's Great "Clown" Song 

HE WAS ALWAYS 
FOOLING AROUND 

'Willie Howards great Winter Garden sensation. The "Nobody Homes" 
are all ready trying to Imitate it. You'll soon hear titles something 
like it. They are even choosing our catch lines. If you want to fool 
your audience sing "HE WAS ALWAYS FOOLING AROUND." Abner 
Greenberg wrote the melody and it's the tune of the year. It's another 
Row, Row, Row, and Then Some. This is not a war song, but we have 
a war version that will make your audience scream, laugh and cheer. 
This version has started a war in the music business. Great war chorus 
and extra comedy catch lines galore. 

"If I Were the Ocean and You Were the Shore" is the beau- 
tiful ballad you are hearing so much about. 

"If They'd Only Move Old Ireland Over Here" is a riot for 
Blanche Ring and Maggie Cline. You can hear it for the asking.

Old Mr. Huerta la a Mexican clown. 
We had to call down this Mexican 

clown: 
When he saw oar warships, why hla 

face wore a frown. 
He was rocking the boat, to we made 

him alt down. 
Now if they don't behave in Mexico, 
We'll make them tide upon tbe B. A 0. 

CHORUS 
Uncle Sam la fooling around, fooling 

around, fooling around; 
Not foolish 

Oil r big fleet Is hanging around: 
Woodle Wilson, he's a wonder; he 

made them get out and under; 
Yon can't fool the Red, White and Bine; 

they couldn't Insult us, they found 
The Star Spangled Banner made them 

change their manner 
While they were fooling around.

Ossisino, K. Y., May 2. 

Ladle* and gentlemen, allow mo to Introduce the 
llluo Itllioou Show an entirety new. carnival show 
organize*! for the solo purpose to amuso and enter- 
tain, and composed of many gentlemen that bavo 
spent "some" real money and time In filling' out 
He outfit. Aa some ohl sink said In olden time, 
"It came and It cuntiueml," no It Is with the New 
Illoe Ribbon Shows. The Kast has been vlalted 
by many of such shows, but seldom, baa a cleaner 
ontflt been seen In these parta. Oaalnlng, the 
opening stand, surely did Itself justice by tbe way 
tbe crowd turned out. And liellevo me they cer- 
tainly oremed satisfied by tho manner in which 
tiie management had catered to their every want. 

As to Its executive stair, I will tint introduce 
you to its general manager, Uarry Six, a gentle- 
man In every itenae of the won), and who knows 
tlio carnival business from A to Z. I tell you It's 
a pleasure to meet a fellow with such starling 
qualities. Then there Is James M. Oooklln, tbe 
general agent, "Pop," aa he Is called by the show 
folks. Jim haa been in the game all his life, and 
It there la a fellow wbo ever got a raw deal from 
Mm let him apeak. lie has booked great towns 
for the tour or the show, and to put la hla own 
words, they expect a general clean up. And then 
Wesley Salisbury, the treasurer and secretary. 
Who hasn't heard of him? lie haa beea con- 
nected la every branch of tho show business and 
always proved pure gold. Mow comes Dan He 
Manoo, the special agent. 

Yes, bo's tbe fellow that has tbe 'Gaiety Thea- 
tre In Albany, lie's ao well known In the game 
that It would be like repealing hlatory to tell 
you about blm. lie haa Invented several new 
trlcka for carnival shows to get money (and la 
Introducing them with this outllt) that will be 
taken up by everyone In the business. Aa his 
side partner George P. Dclfrage, the champion 
apodal agent, need take off his hat to no one. 
George la showing them many new stunts that are 
opening tbelr eyes. A young fellow by tbe name 
of Kred 10. Walters Is back with the ahow. his 
return engagement and second yesr In tbe carnival 
business. Uolly don't tbls boy lesrn quick. For 
putting over lb* big story stuff Fred ha* It on a 
rood many of tbe old timers. Tbe music, which 
I* the Onest In tbe carnival Held, Is supplied by 
Prof. De Nolo and bis sixteen harmonists. His 
concerts, as a bally-boo, brings In tbe moat skep- 
tical. Billy Allen, who could pack a show In hla 
ileep. Is tbe team master. The lighting 1* taken 
ears of by Walter Van Zandt, electrician, and 
let me say right here, this fellow has taken much 
care In giving them all the lights needed. Will 
Brown Is boss canvaaman, and the condition of the 
outfit shows what a competent man he la. 

Now, reader, after taking up your time In In- 
troducing tbe executive staff, won't you agree 
with me that this trick ought to get tbe money.

THE GREATER HEW ENGLAND SHOWS OPEN. 

FORI CHESTER PROVES A GOOD TOWN. 



ST JiCK XHWABUB. 



Poet Ousstkb, K. Y. April 28. 

Well, boys, you'vo got to hand It to ike Fried- 
man and Whltey Adam*. They have put together 
an outfit that Is going to get souio money, or I 
nils* my guess. Tho bora were scheduled to open 
Saturday, April 25, but Hie weather man stepped 
In and postponed the grand event until Monday 
xtlght. Tho crowd began to appear early, and by 
eight o'clock hardly breathing apace was left. It 
was an opening that l'ort Chester Isn't likely to 
forget In acme time. Tho committee men couldn't 
say enough In praise of lur friends, Iks and 
Whltey, In putting together such an excellent or- 
guulxatlou. The New England Shows are bigger 
and grander tban ever, and that's going soma. A 
1'urkor carry-ua-all and an F.ll Ferris wheel put- 
ting It on an even footing with any allow of It* 
kind that has ever appeared In these parts. 

That the peoplo are hungry for this sort of en- 
tertainment was shown by tbelr liberal spending 
of money. 

It was tbe first carnival to appear la tbe East 
this season, and should get tbe cream of tbe 
business. 

Tua Nsw Yobk Clippbb'h road representative 
waa a visitor on Tuesday evening, and found the 
same condition* a* on tbo cnienlng night. Ye gosls, 
what a bunch of people showed up at the grounds. 
And couldn't tbey spend money, the boy* got tired 
making change. 

Tbe fronta are all brand new, and the arrange- 
ment* are such that nobody should have a kick 
coming. While the Greater New England Shows 
was a mighty swell outllt last season 1 wo some- 
what surprised to find such a great Improvement. 

It didn't seem possible (bat an organisation 
could Improve to aueh an extent In one season. 
Both Ike and Wbltey have worked hard the past 
Winter In getting tho allow together, and deseTve 
all tbe success that will come to them. They 
hare a tine bunch of boys with the ontflt. and a 
most enjoyable engagement Is looked forward to. 



Ike Is attending to the promoting, and yon all 
know tho towns this boy get*. 

Tbe staff consists of Ike Frcedman anil Whiter 
Adams, equal owners; Joe King, general an- 
nouncer: J. K, Oook, secret a ry | W. Adams, 
treasurer; Dill Hamilton, legal adjuster; II. 
Adams, general manager: Ike Krenlmaii, general 
agent; F. Caasldy, special agent : It. Smith, tralu- 
tnuster. Dr. Vnipiaia. bandmaster, with a hand 
of some fourteen pieces. 

The Diving (Jlrl Show, Adams aud Freediuan, 
malingers; Joe King, lecturer. May (Jollier, as a 
s|>eclal attraction. In a forty-foot dive, proved a 
big attraction. Jennie Gerard, singer, and tho 
divers Included: ltnlb Wood, Florence Hchcnolln, 
Nora Leahy and Helen Osbcrgor. John Gold- 
smith's cabaret and athletic show was a big fea- 
ture. Those taking part lu the nhow were: J'thel 
Kelley, ltosn Urown, Itoso Smith, Gertrude Man- 
ning and Kthel Ixtvcy. Al. Anderson 1* talker, 
with Jack Morrow as assistant, 

Honklnsou ami Lo Circs' Motordrome, J. M. 
Ilopklusou manager, him three rider*, Sam Flue, 
Jack Cotlrell and Jubnuy Daly. 

The I.ulu Show. J. W. Taylor, manager, pre- 
sented tho smallest horse In tiro world. 

l'Tlncess Hiizane, tlio Utile doll lady, I* manaucd 
by Antonl Mayer, with Miss Mayer a* ticket- 
taker. 

Princess Athena's Beautiful Egypt, presenting an 
Oriental trout* of dancers and singer*. Princes* 
Alhcna, In her special dance*, was tbe feature 
attraction, and had all Iho l»y* sitting tip and 
taking notice. A sword-dglit by two members, 1* 
also a big feature, and cause* much excitement. 

Watson's trained wild animal arena showing 
many beasts new to tbe natives here, was a big 
biu-lncsH-gcller. 

There are over thirty concession* bandlsl by 
Imya that have been In tbo game all their lives, 
and surely know how to get tbo money. 

It require* tea car* to export the slow from 
town lo town.

spondency caused by Ill-health He hss not been

ion that his malady waa Incurable. Never by

FAKE IlEPORT OF CONSOLIDATION 
OF FEATURE CONCERNS 

IM'IPIMIICI). 
Last week a Western paper, supposedly 
published to record the activities of the 
amusement world In general, curried a Ktory 
to thi' effect that the Fumojs Players, l>asky 
and All •Star Dim concerns were to form a 
combination of Interests. Needless to say the 
story was without any foundation of truth, 
and besides the emphatic denial of all tho 
film companies involved la the statement, 
the publicity manager of one added a touch 
of delicious humor by remarking: "The 
Famous Players, Leaky and All Star com- 
panics have no intention of forming any 
sort of coalition whatsoever — and you might 
say — ahem — that paper that published the 
yarn secured a dandy 'scoop?' of a rumor." 
HAZEL DAWS, MUSICAL COMEDY 
STAH, TO DC FEATURED IK "ONE 
OF OUR GIRLS," FORTHCOMING FA- 
MOUS PLAYERS PRODUCTION. 
The Famous IMayere Film Co. (wean Oic 
production last week of that great Interna- 
tiona) success, "One of 'Our Ulrla," the cele- 
brated drama which so closely intcrwenves 
the Interests of two mighty nations; Eng- 
land and America, written by the late Bron- 
son Howard. Hazel Dawn, the beautiful 
and artistic little star, who achieved fame In 
the title role of the populnr light owra, "The 
Pink Lady,'' will piny the role of Kate Ship- 
ley, "ono of our girls." 

The subject la an especially timely one, as 
It teem* with patriotic Interest, nnd the 
thrilling situations of tho unusually strong 
plot, combined with the Inspiring (sacrifice of 
the plucky and quick-witted American girl In 
behalf of her little French cousin, furnish all 
the elements accessary to the successful 
screen drama. 

NEW CANDLER THEATRE OPENS 
MAY 7, WITH ItLEINETH "ANTONY 
AND CLEOPATRA." 
Tie' Candler Theatre In West Forty-sec- 
ond Street, -between Seventh and Eighth 
Avenues, will be formally opened Thursduy 
tverrlng. May 7, when George Klclnc will pre- 
sent, for the first time la hew York City, the 
Ones photo-drama, "Antony aud Cleopatra." 
The story of'Mnrc Antony's Ill-fated pas- 
sion for the beauteous Egyptian queen, Cleo- 
patra, Is familiar to almost every reader and 
student of history. It Btanda out pre-emi- 
rcntly as one of tho world's greatest love 
tragedies that has been immortalltcd in 
Poetry, aong and drama. It has remained 
for George Klelne to do It fitting justice lu 
the production of tho Clues luoto-drama, 
which is said to surpass any tiling ever ac- 
complished In this wonderful new art. All 
the mighty attributes of tho story are pro- 
duced as faithfully by tho camera as they 
liave been by pen and brush, and the Influence 
Is even more potent, as It visualises the 
story, leaving little to the Imagination. 

A .-musical score, especially composed to 
accompany the story of the play as It Is un- 
folded on tho screen, will bo interpreted by 
a large orchestra, which will he on important 
feature of tho now theatre. 

It is expected that the photo production 
of "Antony and Cleopntra" will be continued 
throughout the Summer, but beginning lu 
September the now playhouse will ho occu- 
pied' probably by a musical comedy, for 
which sort of ontertnlnment It was originally 
Intended. 

Tho Candler Theatre* Is Ideally equipped 
for the accommodation of high class attrac- 
tions. Its stage is ample as to width and 
depth, and its arrangement for the handling 
of tho very largest scenic productions, most 
complete. In Its auditorium comforts the 
Cnndler will be found equal to the best that 
New York now affords. Its first floor con- 
tains 025 roomy, comfortable seats, while Its 
one balcony, of tho cantilever type, seats on 
additional 575. 

During the run of "Antony nnd Cleopatra'' 
at tho Candler Theatro there will bo two 
performances dally. Including -Sunday.

The following letter gives a good idea of

My Dear Reichenbach : 

It will perhaps please you to learn that 
yesterday at the openingof "Brewster's Ml" 
lions," at the Strand Theatre, the receipts 
were, perhaps, the largest ever taken In by 
any moving picture theatre since their In- 
ception. 

The picture went over splendidly, nnd kept 
the audience In. roars of laugb'er. If this 
Is a criterion of the work that wo may ex- 
pect from your corporation, tremendous suc- 
cess only can bo the result.

ROLANDS TO PRODUCE NEW FEA- 
TURE BA4ED ON A TIMELY 
SUBJECT. 

The Rolands Feature Film Co., the pro- 
ducers of "Trapped In, the Great Metropolis," 
will soon commence .work upon their second 
release. The new attraction, which will be 
produced under tho personal direction of 
George K. Rolands, who is responsible for 
several of the most successful productions of 
recent years, possesses a tremendously power- 
ful story, and contains many scenes of more 
than usual. dramatic Intensity. Negotiations 
nre said to be under way to engage several 
Broadway stars for the leading parts in the 
new production. 

VITAGRAPHICS. 

The Vitagraph Co. ins Just completed the 
most virile, Intensely dramatic ar.d thrilling 
lc&lurc firm ever seen. It reaches the alti- 
tude of powerful drama, and naturally ap- 
proaches the sensational In the daring dis- 
played by the action In situations Incidental 
In the story. . The scenes and plot arc laid 
In Mexico, and ombrncc scenic splendor, 
glimpses of Mexican, warfare, and nil the 
local color of Uiat Interesting and much pub- 
lished country. Tills feature of Ave parts 
will doubtless bo the next Broadway star 
feature at the Vitagraph Theatre, New York 
City. It will lie eagerly sought by the ex- 
lilbtoM when rebnaod, for their special ser- 
vice. The present difficulties in Mexico will 
help make this picture exceedingly tlmelv 
and a big attraction. 

William V. Ranous, who wns one of tho 
first directors at the Vitagmph. studios, has 
again returned to his first love. 

Charles Eldridgc. who was formerly a 
character man at the Vltagra'.h. and who 
was recently with the Universal, has re- 
turned to Hatbush and will once more be- 
come a Vltagrapher. 

W. J. FERGUSON SECURED BY CRANE 
FOR IMP FEATURE. 

It was directly duo to Director Frank 
(Crnno's enterprise, aud Indirectly Studio 
Manager Stern nud his willingness to pay a 
stiff prlco that W. J. Ferguson, famous along 
Jlrondwny. nud ono of America's best known 
character actors, was secured to play a part 
In an Imp' feature now* In the courso of uro- 
duction. "Ills I-ust. Chnneo" Is tho cltle of 
tho two-reel feature which, revolves about a 
newspaper office, with I-cnh Hoird and Alex- 
nndcr Garden in tho lead roles. It is the role 
of a butler that Mr. Ferguson is cast for — 
but an important part r.nd particularly diffi- 
cult. In searching around for some one to 
portrny the character Director Crane's 
thoughts soon rested upon Mr. Ferguson. 
Ho was approached and consented, though 
the price wus high. The matter -was nut up 
to Mr. Stern, and the deal finally consum- 
mated. 

Mr. Ferguson has appeared successfully in 
legitimate productions for over forty years 
throughout America. His last performance 
was with Fannie Ward. Jn "Mn<lnm Presi- 
dent." It was his superior work here that 
Impressed Mr. Crane, and was responsible

rights the property of Mort 8inger,"w411 be 
permitted to 'be shown in Chicago. It Is 
said to be a very Interesting six-reel pic- 
lure. In which Nicholas Krassovsky, who 
was the head of the secret police of Kiev, 
figures importantly. " The board of censor- 
ship at first refused to grant .permits -to all- 
iums pertaining to the ' ritual murder trial 
of Bellls for the killing of Andrew YusbJnsky,. 
at Kiev, Russia, on vMarch 12, -lOll," on ac- 
count of the religious prejudice that they 
might' create. > This new portrayal of the 
case, however, corrects the general Impres- 
sion vindicating tho Jews and their religion 
to en extent. The film will be shown first 
on Milwaukee Avenue, and then comes to 
the Academy for two -weeks by a special

William Elliott's film production of "The 
Lightning Conductor," will receive its first, 
an invitational, showing at the Comedy The- 
atre, on Forty-first Street, Thursday after- 
noon, May 7. 

This picture was made last Autumn, liter- 
ally through Europe. The scenario of tho 
photoplav "Lightning Conductor," Js Walter 
Hole's, the management Is Elliott's, and the 
members of the Hefco Film Company are 
Elliott, Hale and Dustln Farnum. They se- 
cured the picture rights to the Williamson 
story from Henry Holt t Co.. the publishers, 
with en Intention of making a wholly orig- 
inal sort of picture. In that every one of the 
scenes In a novei of rapid fire change would 
he faithfully photographed, not in any studio 
or garden Imitation, but in reality. This 
plan was fully carried out. 

Except for the backgrounds, the camera 
man and the machines, the enterprise was 
essentially American. American stars of the 
legitimate theatre plaved the principal parts, 
American raw materials were used In the 
cameras, American money backed up the pic- 
ture players and cars of American manu- 
facture carried the company 'in its serpen- 
tine tour from London to Tromczio on Lake 
Como. 

Elliott, Halo and Fttrmnn were tho acting 
nucleus. Arriving hi Paris, they added to

the well remembered prima dinnn of the 
llostonlans; Itoslna Henley, daughter of E. 
J. Henley : Pierre Vicnnolse, a popular 
French motion picture actor ; Emily Fltzroy, 
Fred Strong, Frederick Klcy and Irene

CHARLES O. DAtMANN INVADES THE 
LEGITIMATE FIELD. 

We have had theatrical people Invading 
the motion picture field, but It was up to 
Charles O. Uaumann, vice president of tho 
X. Y. Motion Picture Corp., to reverse this 
state of affairs and invade the leglttmnte. 

Mr. Itaumnnn, It will be remembered, baa 
been at the California studio* of the N. Y. 
Motion Picture Corp. for some time past, 
putting Into execution come big ideas of bis 
in the way of large features, which are now 
In the making, and, while there, arrayed 
himself with the writers of the four act 
drama, '"Mr, Aladdin," Thomas II. ince 
and W. H. Clifford, managing director 
and chief of thai scenario department of the 



N. Y. Motion Picture Corp.. respectively, to 
present to the public what is hi -the opinion 
of Mr'. Baucunn aad Mr. Ince the best pro- 
duction that lias been put on the boards in 
the past ten years. It la a vital and gripping 
play of the hour with an excellent' cast. • ; 
■ "Mr. Aladdin" opens May 10 at Ham- 
burger's Majestic Theatre, Los Angeles, Cal., 
where It 'Is booked for a long run. Messrs. 
Daumana and Ince will then, bring it East, 
where it will open on Broadway. ■ 

It is needless to say that this production, 
after Its. rum. will be put Into pictures by the 
N. Y, Motion Picture Corp., staged under the 
direction of Thomas II. Ince. All of which Is 
the mod«st estimate -)t a play that Elmer Mc- 
Govern. the truthful tale teller of the N. Y. 
M. P. Co., has seen — three thousand miles 
away. 

"AMERICA," HIPPODROME SPEC- 
TACLE, READY FOR MARKET. 

It Is officially announced that 'the New 
York Hippodrome's most remarkaible produc- 
tion. "America," In 7,000 feet. of moving pic- 
tures, la ready to be shown In the various 
theatres, owned and controlled by and affili- 
ated with, the Sbubert Theatrical Co. through- 
out the United States. 

Tor years aha magnates and others have 
pursued the Messrs. Shuborts with offers of 
fabulous sums for the right to film Hippo- 
drome spectacles, but always without suc- 
cess. This because of lack of confidence on 
the part of the producers in the ability and 
resources of the .applicants to properly pre- 
sent the spoctoel?. Hence it remained for 
the great Hippodrome Inventive genius, Ar- 
thur Voegtlln. and William J. Wilson, the 
eminent stage director, to evolve specific and 
comprehensive plans which met rlth the ap- 
proval of the Messrs. Sbubert, for doing the 
gigantic task properly and with reasonable 
assurance that the outcome world approx- 
imate Hippodrome standards. Thus it was 
that "America," the greatest success ever 
produced at the New York Hippodrome, came 
to be perpetuated la moving pictures. 

To convey some Idea of the humensity of 
the udertaking, a few facts ar« presented. 
To begin with, the equipment for augmented 
lighting cost a little over $21,000, but this 
sum pales into Inslgnlflcanco when compared 
with the operating expense. Millions of 
ccndlc-power were consumed hourly, and 
that, too, at an average cost of $7,14 per 
minute. Although this expense seems great, 
It was of minor Importance In comparison 
with other expenses, such as expert mechan- 
ics, electricians, surveyors, engineers, cine- 
nmtographers, actors and other .ittachos — 
scleral thousand In all. This, without ref- 
erence to the orlgliml investment in the pro- 
duction "America," a quarter of a million 
dollars ! 

"JACK" WAS A Dl'GLER. MAYBE, BUT 
NEVER A BURGLAR. 

Lieutenant John W. Noble, the producer 
of the "Our Mutual Girl" aeries, is looked 
on with suspicion by an actor whom he 
hired to impersonate a burglar. This par- 
ticular actor Is well adapted facially to play 
"crook" parts, and has done so In many 
Fhows and motion pictures. Including "Tho 
Gangsters of New York." He has played 
burglars so often that he feels he knows all 
the "business." 

But Director Noble told him so many 
things to do, characteristic of the under- 
world, that the actor became suspicious. 

''Soy, you know more about being a bur- 
glar than I do." he said. "Maybe you're been 
a yegg yourself." 

Mr. Noble can point with pride to several 
strenuous, years as an officer in the United 
States Arm/, 1 during which he served In the J 
l'lillrpplaes^aaa China, but ho says that the ' 



report that lewas once a burglar Is greet* 
exaggerated t4 '.-Si "."

Company arriving Monday aiteraoon, AprJ

PATHE FRERES AT ODDS WITH 
GEXEBAL FILM CO.— FORMAL RES- 
IGNATION OF PRODUCING COXCEKX 
POSSIBLE RESULT OF COXTBO- 
.VEHSY OVER DISTRIBUTION OF 
"PATUE'S WEEKLY." 
-That Tathe Freres and the General Film 
Co. bare been at the point of each going 
i.eir respective ways and severing their 
business relations has been common knowl- 
edge in film circles during the past two or 
three months. Matters eeen to have reached 
a .crisis at last, however, judging from the 
tone of a letter issued *y Pathe Freres, in 
which they flatly accuse the General Film Co. 
of discriminating against them in the distri- 
bution of the topical release known as 
"Fotbe's Weekly." As a result. of the con- 
flict that has been waging for some time past, 
and in view ot the fact that the Pathe con- 
cern has established through the Eclectic 
lihn Corporation a rather comprehensive 
system of exchanges, through which they ere 
releasing most of their productions at pres- 
ent, a formal announcement of the resigna- 
tion of Pathe may now he shortly expected.

of Lexington, and those who gave exhibits

ing, but strange to say, the communication 
falls signally to state that the ah Important 
fcuujcct of censorship was even mentioned.

force, doff our hats to one Wiu. Barry, the 
advertising manager of the Nicholas Power

SELIG SNAP SHOTS. 

RIGHT FROM THE REVOLUTION IN 
PERU. 

The Sellg Polyscope Oonroany has received 
from its South American representative and 
active agent in- the Held,' Baron Francis B. 
Von/Teuber, pictures of the doings in the 
, capital telty of Peru, daring the recent coup 
d'etat, in which' the constitutional army and 
the invaders' have a clash. Also the first 
plttures ever shown of the officers of the 
provisional government going to Easter Sun- 
day service, at the Cathedral, the Ministers 
of the Republic, the Palace Guards at arms, 
and the army, and navy of Peru. Unique 
and Interesting-Scenes from the great South 
American BejnihUcVon the West. Coast have 
certainly a. timely interest, inasmuch as this 
.Is one of the latent powers which has offered 
to mediate in the case of Mexico, where the 
•raited States is now the Invaders. 
I "BABY" DAT AT THE SELIG ZOO. 
Activities have multiplied at the Sellg Zoo 
In Los Angeles since tbe coming of W. N. 
Sellg, with a trunk full of plans and a head 
full of ideas to make tbds working pleasure 
place ode of the most interesting spots of 
southern California's wonderland. One of 
the big plans embraced in the futurity state 
is to make the' Sellp Zoo a big feature next 
year to entertain the guests from, the Pan- 
ama-Pacific -Exposition, who will naturally 
drift down from San Francisco. An event of 
current importance Is a reception in honor 
of the infantile inhabitants of the Sellg Zoo. 
all sorts of furry little fellows from leopard 
foundlings to Infant elephants. Last week 
"Mary Garden" arrived with ber interesting 
infant. "Tiny Thais," and trumpeted her Joy 
over the favorable' climatic conditions. She 
-was hardly through her rejoicing when 
Miriam,. the -mother camel, who has figured 
in many stately processions, gave birth to 
"Humpy,*' a queer looking little son, who 
Is very much humpbacked and wobbly in 
the legs. There are a lot of interesting 
infantile things, however, in the Sellg Zoo, 
outside of the crocodile incubator, for there 
are a score of lionetws. fourteen bolls of 
puma fur. sixteen miniature leopard meowers 
and a pair of miniature tiger growlers. Two 
baby elephants frisk about, while two giraffes 
ore looking up into bae world, but expect 
much greater length of neck sweep of vision 
within the, next few years when they obtain 
their -growth. Then there are sacred calves, 
a bunch of burros of tender age, an infant 
water buffalo, a pair of shrinking little white 
deer, so that "baby" day at the Sellg Zoo 
will be a ribbon winner in Test variety.

EXPOSITION AT GRAND CENTRAL 
PALACE, NEW YORK, JUNE 8 TO 
13, PROMISES TO ECLIPSE LAST 
YEAR'S SUCCESSFUL EVENT. 
Five years ago the most optimistic of mov- 
ing picture fane would not have predicted 
tliat the interests of the moving picture art 
iwould hold its second annual exposition dur- 
ing the week of June 8 to 10 of this year; 
yet this and many other unexpected things 
have come to pass within the past five years. 
The annual exposition of the moving picture 
art Is an established institution. It met 
with such universal favor last year the man- 
agers and the National Aesoclatlon of Motion 
Picture Exhibitors were Inspired to repeat 
it this year and announce it as an annual 
event They look forward to n, larger at- 
tendance this year than, last, when 'over one 
million persons visited the exposition at the 
Grand Central Palace, and were enthusiastic 
participants do all its advantages and bene- 
fits, showing, such marked interest in every 
phase of the art est forth- In the various 
booths that those in charge are convinced of 
the popularity of the enterprise and its great 
service to tho public, the manufacturers and 
the exhibitors. So pronounced we.B lts'recog- " 
nitron that Its Influence spread to /the other 
side, and European interests' immediately 
began to request its repetition and started 
to reserve space for taking part In this 
year's exposition, now under way. All the 
producing companies this year will have their 
own -individual booth handsomely decorated 
and (furnished, according to -their own de- 
signs. Persons vlsltdng the exposition can 
find the representative players of the dif- 
ferent companies in these booths, where they 
can meet their favorite film artists per- 
sonally. Very nearly all tbe allotments for 
the exhibitors have been contracted for and 
letters are pouring in from everywhere ask- 
ing for a larger apportionment of floor epaco 
for the display of manufactures and other 
Interests. From Ohio and Chicago as well 
as other Western points, exhibitors with 
their families have sent in an assurance of 
the largest delegations that have ever at- 
tended any convention or exposition In the 
history of the business. The headquarters of 
the exposition at the Grand Central Palace, 
Now iork City, resembles a bee hive, with 
its army of clerks working day and nlgbt 
attending to the business involved in its pro- 
mulgation.

shape the big six-reel feature, "The IAne-up 
at Police Headquarters." As a touch of 
gpnuino local color George S. Doue^ierty, tho 
Internationally famous detective, who served 
so well as Commissioner of the Now York 
Police Department, has been engaged to ap- 
pear in the star role. Mr. Dougherty will bo 
seen in every reel of the picture, and is In- 
volved in every situation of consequence, not 
merely playing on Incidental part !n the pro- 
duction, as hnve most of the celebrities of 
the "thief-catching" fraternity who have pre- 
ceded him as screen actors. 

Frank Beal, who has directed: numerous 
Mg plural reclers. is the man in charge of 
the producing end, and promises more than 
one sensational scene, not heretofore at- 
tempted boforc the camera. With an efficient 
man of Beal's calibre at tho helm the gen- 
uine article in realism may be expected.

RODBRT EDESON ASD LASKY'S 

RATI1UB REMARKABLE 

CONTRACT. 

There have been many strange contracts 
made between parties of the first part and 
parties of the second part, but the document 
Hading Kolicrt Bdeson to the Jesse L. La»ky 
Feature Way Co. Is' a classic — and In more 
■ways than one. . . .. 

Ignoring the amount of money to be paid 
Mr. Meson for his appearance In "The Call 
of the North," which Is to be an early release 
of the Jesse L. Lnsky Kenture I'lay Company, 
the contract calls for several distinct obliga- 
tion* on the part of the producers. 

Here arc ft few of the peculiar stipulations 
In the agreement: „ „, 

1 — That the company supporting Mr. KJe- 
enn In "Tlie Call of the North" Is to be 
selected wtth n view to havlifg the people js 
near tike the robust types Inliabitlug tbe 
Canadian Northwest as possible. 

2— That tlie Jesse L, Lasky Company 
agrees to send Mr. Bdeson and the support- 
ing players to Moose Factory, Can., daring 
l he severest period of ihe Canadian Winter, 
In order that proper locale as* the proper 
mirroiiiidhigs bo secured. 

8 — 'That In tbc event of the weather not 
being severe enough nt Moose Factory, the 
.lease L. Lasky Vesture Day Company sgrecs 
to allow Mr. Bdeson hit discretion In aecur- 
iug a location farther North as far as 
Meridian No. "(SO North." 

4 — Ttoal Tiger Tribe Indians to be pro- 
cured by tbc Jesse I,, l/asky feature Play 
Company and outfitted for their appearance 
boforo the camera. . . .. 

5— It Is expressly understood that too 
Jesse L. l<aBky Company agrees to maintain 
(lie entire company In the location selected 
bv Mr. Bdeson until tbo weather Is of suf- 
ficient Inclemency to make the picture and 
alve It the n/oper atmosphere of rlgorousneBs. 

— Mr. RQeaon to work at *he direction of 
(tie producers In location selected, regardless 
of tne severity of the weather — ana .to use 
Ms best efforts In the making of tbe picture 
— even though he risks his Ufa in -so doing. 

Outside of the above stipulations the pro- 
duction of "The Colli of the North" promises 
jo be a very ordinary event. 

11ISA1HU 1ARTERS OF REEL FELLOWS

Aince the meeting held on April IS by 
the Heel Fellows Club of Chicago, plaits for 
a monster benefit have been perfected, and 
iletahs are now being worked out. This of- 
lalr Is going to be something different than 
anything ever before attempted in the mo- 
luip picture business. It Is wide in its scope, 
mid Is hound to have, a very strong appeal 
to the general public of Chicago and nelgh- 
ix.fniy towns and cities.

tional convention here the week of July 0. 
[id firmly convinced are the promoters of tho 
big exposition In conjunction with the con- 
vention that the exhibits will be really worth 
while and a source of Instruction to the ex- 
hibitors and profit to the manufacturer and

largest representation ut the convention, ex- 
cept, of course, Ohio. Then there will be 
e desirable prise for tbe State branch having 
the largest number of membors coming the 
ereatest distance, and this, it Is anticipated, 
will add test saw Interest.

old-fashioned Kentucky burgoo will cheer the 
hearts— and stomachs — of hundreds. Aero- 
plane flights at tbe Wright aviation Held, 
and tide trips to numerous places of Interest 
arc being lined up for the delevtntlon of the

A clause causing much dlactMslon and 
rather difficult of understanding; gays: 
"Farce, burlesque or (krtnm which Is actu- 
ated by levity or any other than serious pur-, 
poses, wilt be discouraged." 

As stated above it is exceedingly difficult 
to Imagine "fane or burlesque" actuated by 
a "serious" •purpose. Possibly the censors 
had In mind some of those "deadly" funny 
"comics" produced by a company not so 
many miles away from the State of Penn- 
sylvania, under the rather misleading titles 
of "howilngly humorous film comedies." 
Some of these arc "serious" enough to plesNe 
the most captious", when considered In a hu- 
morous light.

ent troubles. Attorney Stamper, for ths

Judge Hough appointed Heferee MacOrane 
Coxe as special master to take testimony In 
tbc hearings held this week in the Wool- 
worth Hulldlnu, New York. Fred B. Jones,

matters would be successfully straightened 
out.

gation that Jerome K. Jerome himself is a

SWEET SINGER OF IRISH SONGS 
WITH SOLAX. 

Romance may not be dead, but It is fast 
becoming illent. Bernard Daly, Who has 
starred from tbe Portlands df Maine and 
Oregon to tbe Sprlmsflelds of Massachusetts. 
Illinois ami Missouri, and the Parlses of 
France ant Kentucky, as **The Romantic 
Irish Actor," lias signed a contract with 
Madame Alice lilacne to raise his* lyric tenor 
voice no more at the nod of tbe orchestra 
leader, but to respond rathir to the clang of 
tbe studio bell and con-fine bis ardent love- 
making to the scope of the camera lens.

tbe Hills," "Sweet Inula Fallen.' '• "Old Lim- 
erick, Town" and "Dion O'Dare'' are among 
tbe vehicles that have carried Bernard Daly 
to fame through many long seasons, and

pearance in "The Lure," which Is now In 
process of production at the Brache studios,
